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

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.

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

I'm a very happy Dove - we have a frog and a Smooth Newt who have taken up residence in/around our pond     

I'm also a very tired Dove - it's been serious work in the garden today, digging more manure into the veg patch, putting up bean canes and sowing runner beans.

I've also been sowing seeds, potting on and taking cuttings. 

A supper of chicken and asparagus risotto and a glass of Sauv. blanc has been taken and Dove is
