Blomma, where in Mass? I'm from Lexington... It's been years since I've been back...

I had a cold frame on LI. I loved it! It had a solar powered vent that opened when the temp got to 70 inside to keep the little darlings from cooking, and a bunch of water bottles that would heat up during the day and keep the temp up at night. I haven't figured out yet where to put one in CT. Meanwhile I use a mini-greenhouse. I hang a piece of Reemay behind the door and leave the zippers open, with clothespins so it doesn't blow wide open, and put a couple of 1/2 gallon jugs of water on the bottom shelf. In the spring I use it constantly to park and/ or harden off whatever can take it cool- perennials, snapdragons, eventually tomatoes...
