Well done you two - I was scrolling through trying to find this thread, and then found a message from Fishy that Mike's home - so I got distracted.

Morning Snoodle - I could compete with similar mummy warblings of my own, but as mine are 41 and 37 (or is it 38 ) they'd probably rather I didn't

Beet

Do you remember that science lesson at school where you could produce an electrical charge from a potato?  

I was wondering if he (and I feel it is a he) had done a similar experiment with a chioggia beetroot

Sad rhubarb

Autumn will be the time - the problem will be that you can't take a crop from a crown divided and planted the previous autumn.  If you want rhubarb next spring I'd try to get a well-grown plant now and plant it out now. 

Plant ID's please

You're right - it's a buttercup - it might not be the creeping type, but it's definitely a buttercup.

The first is definitely a honeysuckle - I've checked my books and to me it looks like Fly honeysuckle - Lonicera xylosteum -  described in my Keble Martin as   ',,,. Possibly native in a few woods on calcareous soils in Sussex, elsewhere bird-sown or escaped from gardens, rare. Flowers May. '

Not sure about the other two - I should know what the shrub is - it could be a snowberry but the picture goes a bit blurry when I blow it up.
