My rhubarb looks green then it sends up a beautiful seed stalk! And I miss the harvest. Garlic is about the same with beautiful purple seed head!

    Rhubarb will be leafy and stalks will be green and reddish. Garlic I'm new at, haven't harvested yet

    Break off the seed stems and continue using it. I have been told you can harvest rhubarb in months that don't have an "r" in them. It is usually best in May and June and early July.

    Ok I'll pick that rosy green rhubarb! I did harvest the elephant garlic with purple seed head. Have it drying now.

    Thx Dianacirce. I thought so but I was afraid it was "green"! Then I went on a trip and it was done. I won't let that happen again.
