Rhubarb!

It's rhubarb season - Yay!!    We love rhubarb.   Last year we got a bumper crop, that we chopped and froze and we're still working on those bags while this year's stalk get bigger.  [Our last big freeze set things back some...]

Rhubarb is a perennial plant that is easy to grow as long as it gets plenty of rich soil.  It does not like clay.   It does like sand and it loves manure.    I put mine in raised beds with lots of sand and every spring I dump some chicken dirt around it.   We're well rewarded every year.

Here is a list of wonderful rhubarb recipes for you to try this year.  You'll notice we like to mix berries with rhubarb. It's a Midwestern thing.
