Usually we don't take any leaves from a newly planted crown. A year untouched helps the plant to recover from the splitting and replanting. Most forced rhurbarb has a lot of thin stalks as well as a few fat ones.
Summer cabbages will produce small secondary heads if you leave a few leaves when you harvest the main head.
Aren't you all up early.
Dove that cake looks wonderful. Will get other half to try that recipe.
Three crowns forced under black dustbins. Grown outside.
The first crop of rhubarb of the 2017 season, worth all the hassle of shoveling cow dung.
Still eating swedes Helenor and January King cabbage
Cleaned out the dead leaves and stems from my strawberry plants. New ones to be planted when the water subsides. No digging done yet as the ground is saturated. The only thing growing is Rhubarb and MOSS!
Lardy maybe it is Thermidore, a french garlic. I planted it 2 years ago. Good crop.
Too wet to do any digging but put rotting onions in compost heap. Rhubarb still lying around since before xmas, can't replant with all the rain.
