In the Ft. Collins, Colorado area and looking to get my fall garden underway. I have a traditional row, but I am interested in extending my season. I have Mel's book and the list of veggies, however, looking for hints on covered wagon hoops and sheeting. I am also toying with lamp lighting or infrared heater for the really cold nights.

Thoughts or ideas?

Hi there and welcome to the forum! It sounds like a great idea to me although I have never done it. I would love to here your progress, our weather in SD is very similar to yours!

Welcome to the forum there are several ways to make the hoops.
I use 1/4" rebar cut to about 20" one at each corner of my boxes
then I just arch half inch PVC over it and cover with Visqueen

Fall Gardens Hoops

Here are a few examples and variations.
Raised Bed Hoop house plywood and corrugated polycarbonate

How to make a hoophouse on a raised bed

And a Google search that brought up a ton of how tos.
Raised bed hoop house.

All of these can be adapted to Row gardening. Or you can start building boxes
and converting to raised beds. Its all good!

I am off to get lumber, pvc and rebar.
I am also interested in knowing what I can plant from seed. I see in Mel's book a list, but there are so many varieties....anyone have any experience?

Thanks!

Among the easiest things to grow are kale, leaf lettuce, radishes and spinach. They come up quickly and do well in cooler fall weather. You can get instant salad gratification (if instant is 6 weeks).

If you have a head of garlic, break it into cloves, pointy side up and they will "over winter". Just let it snow on 'em, and they will come up again in the spring. Good luck, and welcome to the forum. There are hundreds of other things, but these are all in my fall garden.
