Steve, heres a small project for your workshop article : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Steve, Today while covering the parts of our garden with tarps and sheets against the early frost potential tonite, I thought of a portable, storable cold frame. Thought you could use this in the workshop article. Use schedule 40 pvc and joints to make a quanset frame the size you want. Glue the joints to only one length of pipe. Fit all the pieces together to form the frame, then fish construction cord or elastic cord through the pipes Tie the cord ends off to eyelets at the outside pipe ends This way when you unplug the pvc pipes from each other, the cord holds them together for folding up and storage in a bag. When in use, cover with heavy plastic and anchor it with heavy wire pickets.
