Beneath the Bucket - Update & Harvest!

~ first harvest of rhubarb ~
Yesterday I ran outside, in-between buckets of rain falling from the skies, & picked my first 2 stalks of rhubarb! They had outgrown the tote, so either I need to find a taller tote (or, as my brilliant neighbour pointed out, put the tote on a couple layers of bricks!) or I leave the plant uncovered for the rest of the spring. I think I'll find those bricks & cover the plant back up. There's nothing like the crisp, tart taste of the season's first rhubarb!!
