strawberries and rhubarb

Filed under:
Time posted: April 11, 2005

The last of my mail order nursery stock arrived today–four rhubarb and 50 strawberry plants (glad I got that raised bed ready in time). I can practically taste the pie already.

The two rhubarb varieties are crimson red and Chipman’s Canada red, both of which were recommended by the KSU extension library for Kansas growing. My strawberries are earliglow and sparkle, again I picked based on the KSU recommendations. The rhubarb crowns are really nice sized, (for four and a half bucks each, they ought to be) but the strawberries are remarkably small. This being my first mail order experience, I’m not making any judgements too soon.
