Replanting the rhubarb
We have a couple of patches of rhubarb on the allotment, both of which were fenced off with chicken wire, to keep the poultry off them. Sadly, they launched a co-ordinated invasion recently and successfully stormed the barricades on one of the patches. The result was a great deal of rhubarb with skeleton leaves. We dug up the patch and have moved it to the allotment at Marley Hill, well away from hungry hens.
