Rhubarb is Emerging
Things are starting to happen as I walked the gardens today to see how they were doing. I came across the rhubarb patch and noticed that it had started to poke through! It won't be long before we will be getting fresh rhubarb! The strawberry plants are looking good and I am hoping we didn't get too much kill from the early rain we got near the end of winter. The ground is softening up and hopefully I can get some areas dug up that we couldn't get to in the fall due to other commitments. In most places the snow has left...thanks to the rain we have been getting, the days are getting longer and warmer and you can start to smell the spring in the air. The first seedlings are coming along and have turned to little plants and the new seeds have sprouted. We are building a greenhouse this year so I have a place for the plants to go once they are out of seedling stage so we are going to have to get to that real soon!!
