Friday continued our cool spell of weather for June. Friday’s high was fractionally lower than Thursday’s, pushing yesterday’s record a little bit further into June. Today’s high was 14.8°C or 58.6°F.

As if we hadn’t enough rhubarb growing on the plot we received a variety called Poulton’s Pride from DT Brown today.
I’ve potted each root into a larger pot to allow it to grow on a bit before planting it out on the plot. I don’t suppose rhubarb will mind this spell of cool June weather.

  1. Lovely, they look like really nice healthy plants. The leaves look quite unusual, but maybe that's because they're quite young. I'm on a mission to improve my rhubarb this year. I mysteriously found a chunk of it on my plot one day, which I planted (never look a gift horse in the mouth and all that), and that's doing quite nicely.
