This has been one of the warmest Winters I can remember. It doesn't seem right that on some December and January days I have been outside in short sleeves! My rhubarb
is a bit confused too! I took a couple of crowns of rhubarb
from my old allotment last Autumn and planted them here in my shaded fruit and veggie garden. As a newly planted crown, I will not be taking a harvest for a couple of years until it gets well established. Give it time to put down a good root system in its new home. Well I suppose a couple of sticks in late Spring won't hurt.
Time to check up on my bags of leaf mould. The warm Winter has helped the decomposition of this leafmould too.
Stacked up in a corner of the garden, this mixture of grass clippings and chopped leaves will compost well. The warmth has really helped this process too.
