The Rhubarb is Growing!

This year, I decided to put in new rhubarb plants on the Home Farm. Rhubarb takes a good while to grow from seed, so I ordered crowns instead. They arrive in the mail looking like shriveled roots that could never grow into anything- just one of the many times you have to take nature on faith when farming! And in the past two weeks, the rhubarb has burst into life, shooting tiny leaves and stems above the ground. We will have to wait a couple of years to start harvesting from them in order to let the plants get nice and strong, but it’s another exciting thing to look forward to!
