Wednesday 11th September 2013 – Another strange find.

Having dug up some more rogue potatoes from in between the Purple Dwarf French Beans, stripped the Rhubarb down to the bare essentials (oh my, there was a huge amount of it. I’ve given some to my friend Sally, and will take some ringing tomorrow for those who want some). After lots of weeding, I then picked the tomatoes that I had. As it’s getting colder during the day now, they’re not going to ripen outside, so they needed to be brought in and put under a tea towel with the others. Most of them were a normal shape, but you know me by now, not everything I grow is normal and regular shape. So here is another growth of mine that looks like a part of the body. This one, I think,

Mark reckons it looks like a heart, but I think it looks like a cute bottom.

  1. Silly question are you still eating the rhubarb because I thought you couldn’t eat it after end of July, oh is that a little white lie I’ve been told. Because I have loads of rhubarb left and look so nice.

    • I’ve heard this before, but it’s mainly the elder generation on the allotment site that do this. I think it relates back to war time. You can harvest rhubarb from Spring to late Summer. As long as it’s growing it can be harvested. As the season goes on, then it becomes less sweet, and the stem become more green rather than red. But it still tastes great, so keep on picking until the plant stops growing and rests for the winter. It’s a very hardy plant as some of it originated from Siberia…it’s chilly there.
