Cold Frame

When I read this post by Ottawa Gardener (who got 3 feet of snow) I realized that I had no excuse not to go out and brush the 4-6 inches of snow off my cold frame and peek inside. Despite all that I didn't check on it until yesterday when most of the snow had melted off of it.
Amazingly, everything was still alive. Nothing worth harvesting, but still alive! I'm getting some ideas on how to make it work better next year. It might help if I actually get around to reading Four-Season Harvest by Eliot Coleman. The pictures are of my remaining lettuce plant(s) and my spindly little scallions.
