3 cold frame's, that's it? Or do you mean something that's like a greenhouse? When i think of a cold frame i think of something 10 feet long by 3 feet wide by 2 feet high. What would you grow?

*** selling plants you pay $3. Dollars for in 2-3 years for $50. Plus planting will confirm that It's a good idea. Irrigation's on a timer...man. 72 ct. Plugs into 1 gal. Pots make you $10. Per in a couple months.... Cuttings make free plants. Good luck.
