Overwintered Success

This rhubarb chard plant had only just sprouted when I brought it inside just before the first hard frost last autumn. Even though it was placed in a south facing window, it barely survived because there were so many cloudy, overcast days last winter. Fortunately, it made it through to spring and as the days grew longer it perked up and began to grow. Now it's a stunning example of how gardening can be done year-round even at this latitude.
