Then I manured the rhubarb - a good dollop of horse manure brings them on. You can just see the earliest sprouts in the top left corner; actually this plant had new growth in December and has survived being buried in the snow.
The purple sprouting broccoli suffered a bit in the snow, with the smallest plants being completely covered and so have lost leaves. The largest plants kept their heads just above the snow, and I expect that they will all grow on now so we can have the produce in April.
The garlic was very late in arriving from the seed company, I normally have it in by now, but it arrived last week and will be planted later this week, now the bed has been prepared for it.
