Vintage plant pictures

 Here are some pictures of the Horseradish and the Rhubarb that I brought back from my dad's birthplace. They have been growing there since my grandmother and great grandmother grew them. My dad's brother and sister in law have lived in the house since the late 40's and have been growing and using them all that time.

and rhubarb on the 24th. amazing growth in one day!!

Vintage plant update

well it looks like the rhubarb and the horseradish have taken to the place I planted them.
Three of the rhubarb crowns have put up new leaves already. Two of the HR roots have put up new leaves also. Yaaay
The raspberry canes have dried up and gotten crispy but I don't know if the roots have survived so we shall see. ( Crossing fingers)
I may have pictures tomorrow

Really Vintage

Oh yaay!! Talk about vintage! I recently got to visit my aunt who still lives in the house my dad was born and raised in. My aunt and late uncle have lived in the house since the late 40s. Well she let me take some rhubarb plants, some raspberry canes, and some horseradish roots for my garden, that she says have been growing there since my dad was living there (30s to 40s) woooo hooooo. Now I hope I can get them to grow!!!
