Thank you Rodger, excellent idea and very doable in my yard.

<Instead of a lidded frame, however, I'd suggest a small version of a
lath house. You might not think so, but even such a frail structure
will significantly even out diurnal variations in temperature.>

No, I can see how this would work.  I've got 3 cold frames now, 2 above
ground and one
sunken and they've been wonderful in exactly that, evening out diurnal
variations in temperature.
