Oh wow! Thank you! When I tried to Google it I looked at the Wikipedia page and a few other less helpful sources. Is it okay to keep it above ground? I see these instructions say to place it underground, but I think the property manager might get a little miffed if she came by to see a giant box in the middle of the lawn area.DoubleDogFarm wrote:Take a look at these. I just Googled Cold Frames.
Many different designs.
That's what I though. It's okay to be the bearer of bad news, because the earlier I know, the earlier I can get new ones going and have happy, healthy plants. I'm glad you said something.DoubleDogFarm wrote:I put this off because I didn't want to be the bearer of bad news. Your Brussels sprouts are very leggy. This is do to not enough light. I suggest that you start over and put the light right over the pots.
I'll add some extra soil to the top of the pot, and when I went ahead and re-potted them most of them got soil farther up. I just went to see my friend's basil plants at her apartment and her's look pretty similar to mine, only further along, and she said she was just doing what the greenhouse kit said to do. She puts her right up at the window, too. I'm getting this feeling that no matter what I do I won't be able to get it to work out. :/DoubleDogFarm wrote:You may find out that this time of the year your window will not work either. Give it a try. Also bring the soil all the way up to the top of the pot. Being down in a hole maybe shading them also. and no fertilizer! I use a simple mix of peat moss and perlite nothing else.
