Description

Image is a black & white view of Loren T. Oldroyd, Agricultural Extension Director with the University of Alaska, inspecting hot frames on Colonist Walt Pippel’s farm. The hot frames, filled with soil and planted early in the spring, were covered with window glass panels to capture and retain solar radiation to warm the soil and get a head start on the growing season.
