How to use Cold Frames to extend your Seasons

It has only been a few days and the Cold Frames are working exceptionally well already! With in 20 minutes the temperature had gone up by 20 degrees Celsius! Over the past few days the cold frame has often been much warmer despite the cold temperatures outside. It works so well that it has even hit 45C (113F)!

I thought I would ask Patrick from the One Yard Revolution channel on YouTube (Link Below) to join me and answer some of my questions including the following!

1. What kind of plants do best under a cold frame?

2. How do you use the cold frame to direct sow plants early?

3. Do you have any tips or tricks for using cold frames in your garden?

4. Is there anything I should be aware of ?
