Monday 13th March - Rhubarb

I am pleased to report that Allotment 21 is officially on the rhubarb bandwagon as reported in Anything but Sprouts and Horticultural. In our case by accident rather than design as this was the only identifiable edible plant on the plot when we took over. Spouse spotted it first and Mel rescued it by moving it before the shed covered it.

Witness our specimen yesterday bravely appearing through the snow. Not sure if the snow is a good thing or bad thing for rhubarb and Spouse reckons we should cover it with manure. Now it is a prized trendy plant I am sure we will be fighting over custardy...

(from the Den school of punnery!)

It's not all pie-in-the-sky, you know, to hope this story ends with happy-ever-afters. Then we'd all be a-moose-d - or maybe just a trifle deaf. Sorbet about all that.

1.Good to see it's all going according to flan

2. Lady Penelope: I'll just ring for Parker - I want some more of that lovely fluffed-up egg-white dessert, over a lemon-flavoured base.....(rings bell to summon her manservant)
Parker (entering with a tray): Meringue, m'lady?

3. I'm sorry about the above, it's been a hard day, and I'm running out of inspiration. So my currant ability's a bit low. I hope to be raisin my standards again soon...
