She meant well ...

I trans-planted some rhubarb on the weekend and I had to dig up a burdock plant (bur bush) to make space.

Now I admit I was lazy and just left the burdock leaves on the grass near the newly planted rhubarb. So on Monday Barb saw the burdock leaves and thought that they were rhubarb and she planted them all nicely around the real rhubarb plant. An easy mistake .. they do look similar. She really meant well. She is really supportive of my diet and was just trying to help out. I appreciate the effort but I appreciated the laugh even more!

  1. Tell Barb not to feel bad, I might have done the same thing. But you know my gardening skills having seen my tomato plants! By the way, they look like they're going to pull through (well some of them) but I will be shocked if I see an actual tomato this year! I hope your garden is doing well. Please do update on your food adventures.
