Trying To Stay Warm

After reading that tina at In The Garden insulated her entire greenhouse with bubble wrap, I started thinking that my tiny cold frame could benefit from a little insulation too.

There are little radish and lettuce sprouts in there.

This wasn't a high tech installation.  I took some quick measurements, cut some bubble wrap I had saved from packages and put it along the walls of the cold frame.  I used a little tape in the corners.

It rubs a little where it meets the sliding lids.


  1. Hi Sherlock,
    Bubble wrap works well. Have used it to insulate our greenhouse during some bitter winters. Just watch the ventilation as it seals everything airtight and things can get too damp and musty. Take care.

  2. I'm sure it will help. Isn't that one of the great things about blogging? Trading ideas and such...

  3. I thought Tina's greenhouse story really great too. Glad to see that you used the bubblewrap idea for your little cold frame.

    Have a lovely weekend ~ FlowerLady

  4. I never thought of this. What a great idea!

    Thanks for sharing...

    Thanks for the warning. I'll keep an eye on it.

    I feel like all the shared ideas are little gifts!

    Isn't it fun how we feel like a little community sharing each other's gardens?

    Thanks for stopping by.
