With a low last night of 21, I knew it was time to cover my broccoli. It is growing away nicely, and I don't want frozen broccoli before I have any actual edible broccoli. So, it's time for the sun box to make another appearance.
First, I had to move one plant so that it would be covered by my box. What can I say, you have seen by now that planning is not my forte. =) Once that little darling was moved, I took a few simple steps to extend my growing season.
Step one: grab all the wooden frames and used window. You can see my original post on the sun box here. Below is a close up of the simple frame bracket.
Step two: Stack 'em up.
Step three: Roll 'em out. This year I decided to line two of the sides with foil to increase the light. I might accidentally cook the broccoli, but you never know until you try!
Voila! Mini-greenhouse, aka sun box, is now protecting my plants and extending my growing season. =)
