Think crocuses...think freshly turned soil on the neighboring farms...think signs posted reminding residents of weekly farmers markets...think RHUBARB!
I love rhubarb. I'm not sure why. I'm not going to tell you that I used to pick stalks and dip them in sugar before taking a big bite (I knew kids that did that...but not me). I'm not even going to tell you that my mom made weekly pies out of the stuff (she made a couple in her day but nothing that stuck in my head). I really think that it's because it's one of the first few things I pick from the garden and whatever I make with it always involves copious amounts of sugar.
Isn't that enough?
In this post, I will tell you a bit about transplanting. But, as I type, I have the most glorious strawberry rhubarb squares in the oven! Check out my cooking tab tomorrow, and I will have the recipe posted there!
