More Information

Here’s the print out that we put on the wall of the front yard garden.  Our hope is to let the folks in the neighborhood know our intentions (NO CORN!), and to let them know that we have plenty of enthusiasm and experience to make it a beautiful space.  Thanks for all your support and advice, especially the folks from the DC Urban Gardeners!

Garden Promise

In other, actual gardening news…the rhubarb has reared it’s little head!

We planted 2 Victoria Rhubarb crows a few months ago, so we’ll be up to our necks with rhubarb, but i won’t harvest until next year so the plants have a good chance to get established.

And, the garlic has really taken off with the warmth the past few weeks

    Oh, I love rhubarb, and I desperately want to have some in my yard. I apparently decided too late this year, because it seems that most places are sold out. Ah well.

    By the way, I’m curious how you came to choose ‘Victoria’.

      the real reason that i ended up with voctoria is that: it’s the only one seedsofchange were selling at the time! they are still shipping the crowns, if you really want to get some. look under the live plants category

        Thanks for the info! I found ‘MacDonald’ through Burpee, and according to VA Cooperative Extension, it’s a good variety for the clay we have masquerading as soil.

    cool: be sure to dig in plenty of compsot as rhubarb is a heavy feeder. it’s gotta eat if it’s going to get 4 feet tall!
