Cabbages Move Outside

I did some mowing, pruning, and weeding last weekend.  I also set up my cold frame in the old herb patch.  This is mostly overrun with oregano and garlic chives (and weeds), so I didn’t need to be too careful about where I put the cold frame.  It would have been easier to set up if the ground were flat.

Late this afternoon, after the cold frame had warmed in the sun, I moved the cabbage, kale, and cauliflower seedlings into it.  I’ll close the lid when it is cold out, and open it (as in the photo) if it gets too warm.  I’ll leave these seedlings in the cold frame for a few days to acclimate to the temperature swings and bright sunlight before I transplant them.
