Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 137: Planting a Rhubarb crown.

My mum has sent me a Rhubarb crown…’s the first Rhubarb I’ve had on this site so I’m super excited. The variety is called ‘Champagne’. I also tend to my perennial kale (Taunton Deane) as it has come under some attack. Fingers crossed I’m not too late…..

Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 132: Perennial Kale (Taunton Deane) & other brassicas.

I was very kindly gifted a perennial kale recently – ‘Taunton Deane’. It should keep me in lovely kale leaves for years to come. Finally I made time to plant it in my garden and whilst there tend to my other brassicas. The sight of all their beautiful green growth at this time of year is marvelous and I can’t wait to start chomping on all those lovely leaves.
