After all the sunshine over the past week, Thursday turned out dull with some light rain on and off throughout the day. It was the first time in 9 days that the temperature didn't manage 20°C.
It certainly wasn’t a day for doing much outside. I had some rhubarb to cook and decided to compare the difference between 2 varieties. The first is a little uncertain it comes from one of our old mature roots which we think is probably Victoria but we’re not absolutely sure. The second is Giant Grooveless Crimson a variety we added a few years ago which now crops reasonably well.
On the left is our typical stewed rhubarb compared with the much darker red colour of Giant Grooveless Crimson living up to its name.
