Journal March 25, 2015

The temperature today was about 40 F,  with moderate winds making it feel much colder outdoors.   A thin layer of high clouds somewhat obscured the sun, but enough sun cut through the clouds to allow the temperature in the greenhouse to finally exceed 70 degrees F.  

Not wanting to waste the opportunity to take advantage of the natural light and heat, I trudged through the snow and placed a few recent olive clones in the greenhouse for the afternoon.

It is a great feeling to use the greenhouse for the first time in the spring,  even if it is only for a few hours.  Now, I will remove the detritus of winter storage and begin to get it spruced up for the coming season.
