In October chills coax more vegetables in a cold-frame. In late winter plan the garden of the Spring. Our Lord illustrates this kind of dis- ciplined labor in the "in-between" seasons as Luke recounts in 6:12, "Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. And when it was day, he called His disciples?'
