Farmer D Cedar Cold Frame, 2' x 4'

Extend the growing season or get a head start on your spring edibles with this protective cold frame. It provides a comfortable climate during inhospitable winter months, so you can start seeds directly outdoors or continue to grow fall and winter vegetables. Sized to fit perfectly on our 2' x 4' Farmer D Raised Bed on legs or directly on the ground. Crafted of 1.5"-thick FSC certified, untreated western red cedar that is naturally rot- and insect-resistant. Plexiglass lid is slanted to prevent snow, water, and detritus from accumulating on top. Provides optimum growing conditions by preventing heat from escaping and sheltering plants from wind. Transparent top allows sunlight to enter. Top of frame may be raised for ventilation, metal struts allow for easy opening. Fully assembled. 48" x 27"; tapers down from 7 1/2" to 6" high overall; 6-cu.-ft. cap. Made following socially responsible, environmentally friendly business practices by a company that helps empower people to grow healthy foods and build sustainable communities. Handmade in USA.

Not correct size for a Farmer D 2X4 raised bed
April 12, 2013
This is a well built product similar to the Farmer D raised beds.
However in the description it reads that it will fit directly atop a Farmer D 2'X4' raised bed frame.
It will not. It's much bigger than the Farmer D raised bed and hangs over all over.
The actual measurements are 48.5 X 27.5. so it's clearly much larger than the raised bed. The outside measurement of a 2'X4' raised bed is 24"X48" exactly.
That being said it is still usable atop the raised bed. However for real cold weather (which is why I bought this) I'll have to devise a block to make the bed as air tight as I can.
Pros: quality product
Cons: doesn't fit 2x4 raised bed
