Planting Begins

Keith and Steve tilling.

On April 1, we were able to start tilling more of the garden and preparing for the CSA, and to our absolute amazement, there was plenty of rhubarb to be harvested.

We have so much rhubarb that we sell it in addition to including the rhubarb in the CSA. One-third of the proceeds are donated to the American Red Cross. The boys sell it for $3 per pound and one pound equals about three cups. They are the fifth generation to raise the rhubarb which was originally planted by their Norwegian relatives on the farm they homesteaded when settling near Tracy, Minnesota.
