Now that the holidays are over and the company has gone, I took some time today to go check out the garden. And I found this:
Remember the rhubarb I planted in October? Yup! It sprouted. I'm fairly certain it's NOT supposed to come up at this point in time. This was by the shed.
So then I went and looked over by the deck, where I planted two more. And sure enough it was up. It even looked like Mr. Bunny got to one of the leaves, so I promptly surrounded it with chicken wire.
Then I went back to the shed to look for the other plant. And I was completely blown away to see this:
WHAT?!?!?! It's December, Rhubarb! How in the world are you going to make it through til spring? I looked it up. Originally from Siberia, it's very hardy. I'm banking on it.
