Building a raised-bed cloche

 One of the ways for northern gardeners to expand their growing season is to utilize green houses or a cloche.  I discovered "How to build your own raised-be cloche" the internet.  It was provided by Oregon State University Extension Service.

Since this spring has been unusually warm I decided to wait until this coming fall to add a polyethylene cover.  I will likely order some 6 mill UV protected polyethylene plastic sheeting over the internet.  If someone out there might like to go in on an order please let me know.

I used a tarp to cover the plants on the very few cold nights we've had this spring.

Fencing around the raised bed was added to keep the rabbits out.
