On a beautiful summer’s day, while working in the garden, I watched two butterflies meet, and fall in love.

For us at the farm, organic gardening is the only choice. Conventional gardening revolves around products that kill everything they touch, knocking Mother Nature off-balance and doing harm to the environment, birds and plants that live around us.

Cold frames protect plants from the wind and also retain heat. Gardeners use cold frames to extend their gardening season—to get a jumpstart in the spring when seeds are sowed or to prolong the season in the fall for a couple of weeks. Cold frames are also used to "harden off" seedlings that were started indoors. It’s now time to start your cold frame/hot bed if you want to get ahead of the growing season.
