So rhubarb isn't really a thing here in Portugal and it may not be suited to the climate but I have germinated some seed and have four baby plants.
Anyone grown from seed before?  I am guessing it will be several years before I get a crop?

Just wondering whether I got the idea here or not?

In the autumn I decided to plant my onion sets in root trainers rather than out on the plot (good job I didn't, given that it's flooded since!), and kept them in a cold greenhouse up until about two weeks ago when they went into the cold frame to finish hardening off. I planted them out today and the job was a doddle - they had huge roots on them, and the soil staying in shape so I could just make a hole by wiggling the trowel and drop them in. So far so good - assuming I'm not years  behind the times and everyone else has been doing it for years, I will try to keep you updated.

I'm going to have a crack at growing this as our "new" crop this year.  We've grown one unsual item every year for the last 5 years and this year its going to be Celtuce.  Has anyone any tips for growing/harvesting/cooking this?  What sort of success did you have.  The "unusual" stuff we've grown in previous seasons has not been a wild success.  The resulting produce was a bit yuk!  Hoping this Celtuce will be more palatable.  :wave:
