Rheum rhabarbarum - Rhubarb      

May 1, 2008 – I got several Rhubarb roots from my friend Pat in Fairhaven who has a well-established plant. I planted them in the vegetable garden that same afternoon. Of course, they were quite wilted. After several days of rain right after planting, most of the leaves died and I was afraid the plants were drowned.
June 10, 2008 – There is a small clump of several Rhubarb leaves growing, that have taken root from one of the plants that Pat gave me.
August 1, 2008 – There is really nothing left of any of the Rhubarb. Not ever having grown it before, I don’t know if it has just gone dormant or if it has actually died away. I guess I’ll have to wait until next spring to find out. Pat has offered to give me more roots if these didn’t make it.

This planting is in the Vegetable & Fruit garden .

Gift from friend Pat in Fairhaven.
