My Proudest DIY?

I've done a lot of projects I loved but I chose my DIY Greenhouse for this weeks topic because this is the one that brought me to the Hometalk community, something I am very happy to be a part of! And since it's time to start those cold weather crops, it's seems a fitting project to re-share :) Full tutorial in the link.
Time: 2 Hours Cost: $50 Difficulty: Easy

    Friends in a local community garden are using this type of cold frame, with a slight variation. A slightly larger pipe, approximately 1 to 1 1/2 foot long in hammered into the ground and the ends of smaller pipe that curves over the vegetables is inserted into the remaining 6 to 9 inches ends left above ground. Their plan is not as high and it's extremely sturdy in windy conditions. The plastic is then anchored to the ground with bricks placed along the outer edge. For more protection in colder weather, simply add another layer of plastic. These friends start their vegetables in April when our nights are below 32*F.
