« Time Taken | Main | The First Potatoes »



I wish I'd had this advice last year - but our Timperley is fine, although not that early ;)



I've got some rhubarb coming up in my new garden. I suspected one plant would come up, but until all 4 appeared I didn't know for sure I had any at all. All just left behind from the previous gardener.

When I was a child, my grandmother who lived in Vermont grew a really delicious variety of rhubarb. If I had any way of knowing what kind it was and finding it, I would grow it again in a minute. The variety really makes a big difference in taste.

I was thinking of trying to collect as many varieties as possible and grow them next to each other to find the best tasting one. The problem is, while I do like rhubarb sometimes, I don't really like it enough to grow so many plants.
