Susan not sure what variety rhubarb i have except its green stemmed - there is a lady at the monthly Dayboro markets who sells it as punnets and corms from green harvest so I would think it was their Victoria variety  -  its better for our hot climate than the red variety but we have it near the tank so it only gets morning sun - it was planted May last year and this is its first harvest

Looks like things are all happening up there.  I'm also growing rhubarb - what variety do you have?  We need to compare notes as I've never grown it before and am hoping I can keep it alive and well over summer.  Yours looks very healthy

this mornings breakfast - rhubarb - and yes only one chick so far  - its so funny to watch cause two chooks were sitting on eggs side by side and both have claimed her as their own - two more chooks  are still sitting on eggs so will see what else we get ! had to save them all from a big brown snake the other afternoon ! they put on such a racket so went out to see what was wrong - he was collecting the water drips fom the water feeder ! so he got relocated far away ...

Gorgeous - you have such a great spot there on top of your hill. All dry and clean again?

Only one little chick hatched there at the end?

Mary_Ann, I suppose all the carpets are dry now, and did they come and fix your solar hot water?
