rhubarb

I bought timperly last. Autumn hoping would get lots of tasty rhubarb instead of the giant wooden sticks from my allotment which all seem to end up going sappy with little beads of sticky stuff at the bottom. In Scotland at the foot of the cairn o mount mountain  and with a rich but sticky red clay soil, i have  dug in plenty of compost and composted manure so I hope this will work. Everyone says rhubarb is easy to grow,well yes it is but  I never seem to get a good crop. Given up the allotment a d now have a 3 deep bed micro lot with room for some potatoes I have my fingers crossed. 

Preparing greenhouse beds

Just down sized to a lovely bingalow and hv treated myself to a large Rhino greenhouse. I want to grow some crops in beds inside the greenhouse but the ground is to awful for words. Talk about builders rubble.. boulders bits of wood plastic banding you name it and it down in there. so far I have dug down 18" and  removed the clayish soil in 2 ft areas, seiving out stones and debris and breaking down the clod like bits of clay as i am told its nutrient rich.  I add blood, fish and bone and leaf mould then refill the cleaned soil and cover it with black soil membrane. I will have to do this to all the soil I think.  Am I doing the right thing
