Garden Tuesday, the rhubarb IS GROWING!!!

This rhubarb is soooo tired of moving from bed to bed where it was not happy, but it seems that maybe, just maybe it is happy.

Or at least growing in self defense, so I won't uproot it again,

I only have this to say about that, it is about time already!

The new bed, right after transplanting. The lone plant left with any showing growth, was placed in the middle of the bed. The other smaller rhizomes were placed on each side. 

New growth on the center plant.

But look here, new growth coming up on the left!

New growth to the far right!

Lots of new growth coming up, center right!  ( Just follow the rocks to find the new shoots!) 

The only spot in the planter that is not showing signs of new growth, is the far left side of the planter. That is the smallest root/rhizome, maybe it is napping. If I don't see anything next year, I will replace it. But for now.........

We shall call this a success!

As always, thanks for taking the time to stop by.
I appreciate your time and your wonderful comments!

Looks like it's growing well. Ours grew, but the stems never did turn pinkish red. I should have researched why, or if there is a variety that doesn't turn red, but it just never made it to the top of my to-do list. :(

I hope the rhubarb continues to grow and will flourish to profusion! Mmmm...just thinking about all the yummy things you can make with rhubarb makes me swoon!

What growing zone are you in up there in Vancouver? I wonder if it's similar to ours here in Monterey, CA. It would be so wonderful to be able to grow rhubarb here!
