Rhubarb Starts.

Great bedfellows… rhubarb and manure.

I was in two minds as to what to do with the rhubarb plants in my old allotment. I needed to move them to my new plot and wondered should I use the traditional method of dividing the plants OR dig up as much of each plant as possible to transplant? Because I want to get a harvest this year I decided to go with the latter. Dividing the rhubarb would have meant no pulling of stems till next year because the new plants need time to get established. Anyway, they are in their new bed now with plenty of manure to keep them company.

Other news on the plot is that the shallots are looking very healthy and the onions, while not as showy, are doing well in the company of a surprising amount of weeds.

Shallots.

Weeds & onions.

A splash of colour.

Time to go home.

  1. First, I envy you your rhubarb. Second, thank you for the view of the landscape. How lovely to lift your head and look out over that when your back grows tired.
