    Do frames in the text below mean what could be found as garden frames?

    ‘Now why, I ask you, shouldn’t I pick a little of this gentleman’s precious fruit, or a cucumber for a salad, if need be, and him not there? What if I wanted a few grapes for dessert or a nice apricot tart for the Reverend’s luncheon, and our Mr Menzies gone home or busy with the frames? I don’t hold with all these hard and fast restrictions, at least outside the house. Not he, though! We wrangled about it week in, week out. And him with a temper which once roused was past all reasoning.

    Crewe, W. de la Mare, 1936

    Thank you very much.

    Re: Frames

    These are (garden) frames.

    I used to have a low frame in my garden for my strawberries.
