Journal October 16, 2015- As the season end

The weather service is forecasting overnight temperatures in the twenties in the coming days, so I thought it prudent to place the olives in the greenhouse today.

To keep the daytime temperature to a minimum, I plan on opening the vents and doors.  The goal is to give the trees about four hundred hours of chilling, with an average temperature of 50 F or so.

Yesterday, in anticipation of the frost, I picked the last of the green beans and pulled the plants.  Today, the raised bed was replanted with Italian Purple and Canadian Music garlic.  All of the bulbs planted were from the crop we harvested this year.
