Rhubarb index 2020

First spotted rhubarb poking through when the snow melted a couple weeks ago. This pic is today Jan. 26, 2020.

I was just thinking about that, I'm starting to see some sprouts showing in the yard....very mild winter and little snow.

Due to the pandemic, my life now exists of only 3 days, yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Everything else has been forgotten!

Yes me too, sprouts all over the place, whoops I meant icicles. Being the topic is science, here’s a tip for anyone who is often confused.

Strike while the iron is hot. Live every day as if it were your last and one day you will be right.

I may have to go look. I had separated and replanted rhubarb last fall, and one big plant I divided and had a big root available to give my friend, and noticed it had started sprouting. But I mulched everything with seaweed in October so haven't seen if anything is emerging.

Edit: nope, nothing. But the worms are actively working on the seaweed so at least the garden is healthy. I moved my favorite very red rhubarb to a better place, better soil, and transplanted the one that grows two foot leaves into the original sandy spot. So we'll see.
