Rhubarb, chives and daffodils.

 It's been a busy week sorting the house, washing, ironing, shopping and baking. I've had no time to visit the allotment until today. There was very little growing, but the Rhubarb looked surprisingly good. I only hope it produces the promising yield. Rhubarb crumble, rhubarb and custard and I hope even some rhubarb champagne.

This pot of chives had been outside all through the harsh winter, I could not believe how fresh and green they were. I snipped a few to add to the potatoes we were having for supper.

On the way home I just had to take a quick peek at the bulb fields, I would forgive you for thinking you were in Holland. Windmills and bulbs, not tulips but daffodils. 

Now a little present, this wooly wonder from Karen,  thank you Karen  :-)

Pippa you sound like you are settling in at home. Those chives look like you just planted them! I love the picture of the daffodils and the big wind thingies! Thinking of you.

Love the daffodils. I have never heard of rhubarb champagne. Can't wait to hear how you make it.

Oh yes I would like to know how to make the Rhubarb champagne too, as we found some under the jungle :-D
