Building a Rhubarb Garden, by Kira

The varieties I planted are Victorian and Canada Red.

A south facing location along the lane is where I decided to plant.

I placed logs about two feet out from a steep hill.
Lining the logs, hill and in the garden with straw will help hold moisture and add nutrients as it breaks down.
I filled the garden with rich soil that I dug out of a wet spot behind our barn.
After planting the rhubarb Meer and I top dressed with pig manure.

My sweet little helper.
