Cold frames

One of the keys to successful cold frame gardening is to focus on vegetables that thrive in, or are least  cold tolerant. A cold frame is not going to put ripened tomatoes on your table in January. But it will provide you with some of  the best carrots you’ve ever tasted, lovely firm-fleshed leeks and scallions, as well as succulent cooking greens, and a host of salad ingredients.
Spinach is one of the best crops for your cold frame. It will grow all winter long in the cold frame. As  do chard and Scallions too—even better from the cold frame than from the vegetable garden. Carrots  are outstanding. Make a big sowing at the beginning of August and enjoy delicious, tender baby carrots all

when it finally succumbs to repeated freeze-thaw cycles.  That shouldn't really matter though, because there’s a true winter salad green for cold-frame growing, and that’s mâche, also known as corn salad. This traditional midwinter salad crop is far hardier than lettuce and has been grown in Britain for centuries. Mâche can be harvested while frozen and still look beautiful after it thaws (scallions also can be harvested frozen). The others need to be picked unfrozen. But that is really no problem because the interior of the cold frame gets above freezing on most winter days, even when it’s cloudy. Frisée endive is also quite hardy, as is radicchio along with “winter purslane.”
