Protective Frost Cover for a Raised Bed

Keep the frost off your pumpkins (and other fall veggies)

Over 75 gardeners attended our seminars on raised bed gardening last Saturday. In addition to sharing how to amend your soil, what you can plant and what you should expect to harvest this fall, The Green People had a hands-on construction of a protective cover for hard frosts and freezes to extend your growing season well into December.

I have 6 raised beds at my home and I took pictures as I worked in my garden.

We have kits assembled for a 4′ X 4′ bed.-3 pc. PVC pipe, 9 pipe straps and screws needed – $13.99

And kits assembled for a 4′ X 8′ bed.- 5 pc. PVC pipe, 15 pipe straps and screws needed – $22.99

Clean up the old plants from last year.
