The fine folks at Greensgrow Farms recently asked me to guest blog for them on how my garden weathered our extreme winter. I lost four long-established climbing roses, every single perennial herb except some scraggly sage, about half my grapes, and the real heartbreaker: my prolific fig tree.
On the bright side, well, my garden’s regained a bright side.
Without the sun-hog fig, other plants are finally getting a chance to thrive. So far, the biggest beneficiaries are two rhubarb crowns that have already produced three nice bundles of ruby stalks. Follow the link below to the post, which includes a supersimple recipe for Honey-Roasted Rhubarb.
