Rhubarb

I meant to post about this last week but was so busy time slipped away, a weekend at the beach with friends and now I am back and yumming up the rhubarb. I grew up with rhubarb but it seems to be taking to North Carolina nicely. The plants I have are from my grandmother's yard.

Last week I harvested our first batch or rhubarb. But I can see so many small stocks and leaves that this will be the first of many. My oldest son Dallen helped me and we managed to get it all inside. I had enough to make a rhubarb crisp and freeze enough for 12 more crisps (or whatever I decided to make with it) in the future. I love seeing my freezer filling up over the summer it just gives me such a feeling of abundance and accomplishment.
