With recent blog posts about rhubarb I thought I'd have a look to see what stage mine's at. The giant leaves seem to hide what is happening underneath so it's easy to walk past it (plus it's in a side garden where I don't spend much time). When I went to inspect I had to get down low and only then did I realise some of the stalks look ready to harvest. One of my favourite ways of eating rhubarb is stewing it with a little sugar and eating it warm over ice cream (yum!). Next weekend I'll aim to make rhubarb crumble.
