If I had to be planted in soil, left defenseless against voracious aphids, open to the cold and the rain, I would sure like to at least have some covers or maybe even some kind of shelter. Wouldn't you? Marc Scheidecker, a full-time, year-round gardener & one of the Garden Managers for the Portland Community Gardens Program discusses cloches, row covers, cold frames and trellis'. All of these can be bought, or you (yes, I did say you) can easily make them. Really! There will be a class demonstration to prove it!
