Hi, I'm market gardening and want to include rhubarb in my produce this year, I know you aren't to harvest rhubarb the first year or even much the second year, I know it best to transplant from an established plant. That being said, can I start double the amount of plants from seed, let half establish and harvest the other half, not really caring if the plants make it through the season, can I even lightly harvest these plants and even keep them alive enough to establish and then harvest the other half next year letting the first half recover next year?

Is starting from seed even going to give me much for plants this year, can I start them early in the spring and transplant them out a bigger seedlings, or will they not even have shoots until later in the year?
