Personally, I am not a fan of rhubarb, but I have fond memories of going to a neighbor's house with my mother so she could get rhubarb when I was a kid. They had a very tall, pipe framed swing that the old man had made for his kids who were already grown adults by that time. I would swing while Mom got the rhubarb.
I do have it growing here though, and I had to laugh when we were looking where my husband planted some perennials I bought last fall, he put them right next to where the rhubarb plants I had put there the year before were coming up. One of the perennials doesn't look like it made it, and by the other one, I will just move those plants. I have another rhubarb out by the strawberries. When DH said he didn't know why I wanted to have it since we don't really eat it, I reminded him that many people DO like rhubarb with their strawberries and we are definitely going to have WAY more strawberries than we need this year, it is probably a good idea to have both if I am going to sell the berries. That made sense to him.
I can't give him too much grief, he went around and sprayed all the thistle in my pasture today, and the nettles, and the burdocks, and along the fence line. Now to mow.
@lalaland if you want some of these tomatoes, you will need to come down when you need to have those chicks ;) LOL I am putting another batch in as soon as I am off here. I washed several dozens of eggs today and sold a bunch too. I posted for $2 per dozen as a special for this week only and people snatched them right up! Small bantam eggs too! They are great for little kids or for those bite sized deviled eggs. I just wish I had different colored bantam eggs too, mine are all light brown to almost white.
