Replanting the rhubarb

Before we could extend the goat paddock yesterday, we had to dig up the rhubarb. We moved it to another bed which we are prepared to leave permanently to rhubarb. It was also an opportunity to split some of the larger roots.

We also moved the horseradish. When we dug it up we found a far more extensive root system than we expected so we split it into about 6 pieces and replanted it onto another bed which, as with the rhubarb, will now be used only for the one crop.
