The fruits of Spring!
Here are the first few sticks of rhubarb from my patch. January 2007 a good friend dug up one of his large crowns and generously gave me about 5 or 6 crowns. I held back all last year throughout Summer and I did not pick a single stick in order to let it build up its strength. rhubarb is a greedy feeder! it will take any amount of compost or manure you can give it. Keep it well watered and well fed and mulched and it will pay you back.
