Hey wanna meet up with Paul & Jocelyn?

Paul *loves* rhubarb and is wondering if anyone has culms (roots/plant divisions) to share.

He's willing to trade playing cards or such since we don't have a lot of seeds or plants to share yet.

Others might like to swap seeds though!

Noon in the community space at Natural Grocers on Tuesday, March 24 (2015).

I'm thinking of bringing cards and videos (world domination gardening and wood burning stoves 2.0). I don't mind hanging out for a while if folks wanna visit or talk gardening.

On the other hand, if nobody shows, that's fine - I'll be there for at least ten or fifteen minutes.

One person wrote offering rhubarb in the neighborhood, so we might go digging!

I struggled loads with rhubarb seeds in the spring and was barely successful. next year I hope to do better. My mom had her rhubarb coffee cake recipe put in the church cook book, great stuff. But I can't make it world famous if we're the only with rhubarb. Is there much future demand for rhubarb seeds? Being from Detroit I'm kind of isolated from y'all. Not sure who else might like the rhubarb stuff.

the first picture is from when they were popping like mad. Let's just say that I learned a lot about rhubarb seeds this year and I did manage to save a few...

It's weird that we cook bacon and bake cookies. Eat this tiny ad:
