Brad and I are really getting tired of all the plants in the house,So we figured it was time to start hardening them off. We don't have a greenhouse yet so we built this makeshift 50ft coldframe for around $5.00. We gathered some small willow branches from around the pond for the hoops. It works perfectly! We put a couple of trays of plants in for the whole day to make sure they would be ok before we put them all out. Someday I dream/hope to have a big greenhouse and hoophouses. That would make everything easier!
