Spring is probably THE BEST time of the year...you get to start over if you are a gardener...everything is new and exciting in the yard! You get to see what survived the winter and what didn't...and yes...what is THAT new plant? Did someone plant it or did a new seed blow into the yard? Or is it just a weed? No, it's Rhubarb!
Out in our yard, we have a Victoria Rhubarb growing...Now most people, I am sure, (if you are like me) take things for granted. Rhubarb comes from root stock, or it has always just been there, right? Not so.
Our rhubarb (top left), in it's second year, put out a flower (above middle), grew seed (above right), and we collected that seed (bottom left), let it dry, cleaned it, and voila...packaged it (bottom middle), and brought it to you on our webpage! And, of course, we missed a few seeds and have it growing again in our garden (bottom right)!
Wonder what else I can go find in the garden this spring?
