Rhubarb

This week we have planted our excess rhubarb crowns in the peach house. They are planted in a trench with the crowns just below the surface. They are close together as it is a temporary planting and the crowns will be composted after harvest. We have covered with a cloche of black plastic to exclude light and depending on temperatures we should be harvesting forced rhubarb in about 3 weeks time. Yum!

Helena.
