Rhubarb, that Eccentric Aunt

April 23, 2015

“In the extended family of vegetables, rhubarb is the eccentric aunt with sunglasses and a large beach hat.”

” . . . every year we look forward to the first rhubarb pie of the season the way others look for the first robin sighting or the first blooming lilacs.  It tells us that spring really has come at last.”

    I think, now that I’ve finally gotten used to there being no rabbits in my garden, I think I need a rhubarb plant too. 🙂
