Continuing the look back in time, I thought I’d post a history of the rhubarb growth these past week.
Here is the crown on April 17th:

Here it is on April 20th with a thin layer of used coffee grinds spread around it:
Three days later on April 23rd:
And 24 hours later this morning:
It’s really popped out of the ground in the last four days! After reading more on dividing rhubarb, I think I’ll wait until October/November to divide the crown when it goes dormant. I think it would be too stressful for the plant if I was to divide now during this rapid growth period.
