Rhubarb Seeds are in! Seed Harvest 2015

I have plans to grow lots and lots of wee baby rhubarbs next year and finding  my DSCN5733

own * plant line out of them..

Each seed will grow rhubarb if viable but each seed is a new rhubarb genewise, how very cool is that..

I allowed my favorite and best plants to flower, then I culled based one what I saw

DSCN6901

then I let them set seed and I culled some stalks until in the end  I let the biggest and the best 4 plants stalks dry and harvest from.
