Another really interesting gardening technique is winter sowing: Many hardy plants can be sown outside now. in mini-greenhouses made from recyclables, to get a head start on your summer garden:

GREAT & practical! :) Wish I still owned my little one-story home - it was on a corner lot on a milk downhill slope - this would have been perfect. I hope others try this excellent plan!!

The only hill I have in my backyard doesn't get enough sunlight to make doing this work but it does look like a spectacular idea. I asked my husband to build me a cold frame as a Christmas's big enough to hold all of my starter plants.

I would be concerned that the deer would stand on it and fall through in our area.
