Rhubarb coming through
No self-respecting plot of land could call itself an allotment without a rhubarb patch. We moved our rhubarb a couple of months ago so that we could extend the goat paddock. The replanted rhubarb is now coming through and the (very) early indications are that it will give us at least three crops. The growing season is starting early this year, with the warm weather giving a boost to the new shoots that are breaking through the ground.
