 If self-sufficiency is one of your goals and gardening is one of your passions, building a cold frame is a great way to take a step forward in both areas. You can extend your growing season to harvest more fresh food more months of the year, and also have a new place to start seeds and harden off seedlings instead of buying plants in pots each spring. This project, taken from “DIY Projects for the Self-Sufficient Homeowner,” is one of many step-by-step plans in the book that can help you put your DIY skills to use creating a more self-reliant home and lifestyle.
