Went out today to have a look-see around the garden and noticed that my Broccoli seds have started sprouting. Looks like my fears of only a handful germinating were unfounded. Loads of them, possibly all of them, have come up. Looks I will definitely have to wait a little and thin them out.
Nothing from the carrots or the potatoes so far, I’m not too worried about them yet, plenty of time for them to make a show.
The onions are doing well. Only a couple have sprouted green tops but a couple have grown roots.
I know they have because some of my bigger avian visitors have been pulling them out of the soil, obviously looking for grubs or insects under them!
Speaking of onions, I remembered that I also had a few Red Barons left from last year so I thought I would plant them in-between the other white ones. Only 11 in all, they ranged in size between quite small to actually fairly large! No idea how the larger ones will come out.
And now to the last bit, my rhubarb. It’s growing nicely with wonderful deep red stems and it looks like it does have a second crown growing. Maybe even a third? There is an odd leaf growing at a strange angle just bottom right in the image below.
My one question to anyone who knows… Can anyone tell me what this bulb is on the top? My Google-fu is letting me down and I’m not sure what it is. Should I be concerned?
