    Ohh!! Jack Frost already...here in Calgary I can tell we are not that far off. My zucchini and beans are looking a little beat-up as it has been single digits at night. This weekend it'll be time to clean up the harvest and dream of next spring...

    It was a good growing season but, boy, is it ever coming to an early end. There are 4 days of rain in the forecast followed by 2 days with flurries and freezing rain and overnight temps around -5. The dry beans are being hauled into the house today and hung to finish drying and the tomatoes will all be brought in on the weekend and put in boxes to ripen. We have a little house. It is going to feel packed for the next several weeks!

    Regular tomatoes and cherry tomatoes. Small green bell peppers and a smaller green variety like Cubanelle. Random rhubarb stalk here and there. Not sure what the same clumps evenly spaced are-herbs or? Noticed something rootlike in the ground as well.
    Where the garlic had been pulled out are lots of tiny bulbs that look like mini garlic cloves on the soil surface. Not sure if I should try planting them into the ground or let Mother Nature decide what will root and what will decompose. I don't recall Dad planting garlic after he harvested this summer's crop at the end of July/early August.

    @Ciel I think those mini-garlic looking things might be garlic bulbils! I planted some two years ago. Some varieties take 2 years to reach the size of a regular bulb or garlic, and other varieties can take 3 or 4 years. It is interesting to watch their progress.

    Here are the instructions I followed when I planted garlic bulbils. (also available in French)

    Thank you for the planting instructions, @TrueNorthTreasures ! Yes, it makes sense that the bulbils came from the scapes. I just threw out two plastic plant pots during this morning's first mini-barn cleanup but I can easily use any deep plastic container from ice cream or Tenderflake lard to pot bulbils.

    I had an intention to pull out the rest of the tomato plants today but will wait for the weekend. I had other outdoor work to finish today and my shoulder was not super-happy about sawing one last tough limb into smaller sections but I wanted it in the green bin.
