We have a lot of old Dutch Lights
- the separate wood-framed glass panels from which greenhouses are constructed - so I'm making an impromptu shelter by placing one, raised up on bricks, over the berries (they are planted in one of the raised vegetable beds).
A cold frame need not be an expensive brick built enclosure with Dutch lights
A few years later on a visit to Holland, I found what I considered to be a perfect glass cold frame cover; these "Dutch lights
" had a wooden frame that measured about 2 1/2 by-5 feet.
I'll plant it out soon but probably cover the soil where it's going to go with old Dutch lights
left over from my nursery.
