Rhubarb Finally Sprouting!

https://songofthewolf.wordpress.com/?attachment_id=1015After a long winter, seeing little plants sprout up in the garden is the nicest thing! The rhubarb has just started growing, & at first it’s a very funny looking plant, as the leaves are all shriveled up. It’s one of the earliest plants to start growing, & it grows very fast. In just 3 or 4 days it’s gone from being barely the size of my thumb, to about 4 – 5 inches tall. Some of the other newly sprouting plants are dandelions, lots of bluets, & even a few tulips. In just a few weeks, the ground has lost its dull brown hue, & become splashed with every bright color in the rainbow!

  1. It’s amazing how fast it grows from those first knobbly pink ‘bumps’ into those big, crinkly leaves. We like to mix rhubarb sauce with plain yogurt. It’s delicious!
    We ate our first asparagus last night. Yum!
