First Year Rhubarb

Yes, don't pick any this year.  Pick just a little next year.  The following year you'll be repaid with a really sturdy crown and an increasingly substantial harvest.

I'd give it a mulch with some well rotted farmyard manure or similar right now.

When my son was five years old and just getting into Big Boy's Lego, his sister was about 20 months and a walking and climbing disaster area!  (Have you met Wonky Womble yet?

She could not be contained in a playpen - no way, no how!!!

So big brother played with his Lego in peace in the playpen and she trashed the rest of the house!


Unpleasant adverts

I don't get any ads on this site or any other - just use an ad-blocker 

Algorithms can pick up on combinations of odd words - ever googled 'nature' and 'bluetits' ??? Or even Rubus Cockburnianus?
