Laura Gillen built a cold frame from recycled materials, depends on rain barrels, saves seeds, recycles window screens for fencing materials, uses branches and nylons for support, pillowcases, and is emphasizing perennials in her vegetable garden.

New to gardening
David Marcovitz protected his garden from Bambi and Associates with pvc pipe frames covered with deer netting. He advises to eat the leaves of broccoli plants (cook them like kale) if they don’t produce heads. Be on the look-out (and hand-pick) caterpillars that will devour broccoli, kale, and cauliflower planted in late summer for a fall harvest.
