Cold Frame Is Up, Starting Lettuce Seeds Today

The cold frame went up on February 24th, but I have not moved any seedlings out into the frame because it has been too cold.  I am starting lettuce seeds today and will move them outside into the cold frame as soon as they germinate (probably in about 4 0r 5 days).  I usually like to wait until the weather warms a bit and we get some sun.  Man, we have not seen the sun here in Central Indiana for at least 6 days.  It has been cold, rainy, and snowy for the past few weeks now.  The forecast looks a lot better, especially in another 4 days, when the high temperatures are projected to get into the 40’s with sun!!  If the weather continues to improve, I will start seeds of  brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cabbage in about another week.  SPRING IS HERE :-)
