We have rhubarb (above) coming up in the garden. This is an heirloom green stalked variety. The cabbage and broccoli plants are ready to go into the garden but with 30 to 40 mile an hour wind gusts for the last 3 to 4 days and the threat of hail with several of those storms we continue to hold them waiting for the weather to stabilize. Temperatures are suppose to dip to the low thirties tonight with a chance of frost so these babies will have to wait till a warmer day to be planted.
To all those asking about the plum trees. The varieties I grow are Ozark and Starking. All my fruit trees come from Stark Brothers. They are a wonderful company and I have never had a problem with their trees. Just below the plum trees in the adjoining field is a thicket of wild plum trees also that I have been known to raid. They bloom about the same time and I think are used by the bees to pollinate the domestic trees : )
