the Rhubarb is growing in leaps and bounds! Already the bigger leaves are nearly a foot across. They just love this cool weather and all the rain.
One of the stems got broken the other day (there was prediction of a late frost/snowfall and I freaked out over loosing my plants and covered them all up with various buckets, boxes and the plastic recycling bin. The Strawberry bed got covered with a blanket. Turned out the snowfall idea was a false alarm, but I wasn't taking any chances!) I broke the rest of it off, not wanting to tempt any bugs to invade the plant tissues, and the scent of that red stalk was just so delicious. It had me dreaming of pies already...
