Of the three rhubarbs plants we put in last spring, only one survived the flooding, but it is coming up very nicely and this weekend we’ll plant two or three more.
As soon as the leaves sprouted we inverted a large planter over it, a technique that encourages longer stems, and so far we are very pleased with the results.
And of course we’ll be very happy to cook with those long tasty stems, especially with the fruits of these little plants growing nearby.
