|check out those roots!|
It seems as if spring just exploded here. The slightly warmer days have made our grass mostly green. The trees look like their buds are starting to get bigger.
In fact, one of the things that tell me that spring is officially here are the first signs of rhubarb! We planted rhubarb on a dark side of our house...which hasn't served it well in the past. Its biggest enemy is the dinosaur spiders that call that corner their home. Doesn't seem to matter how many of their offspring i sweep away, those spiders refuse to give up that corner. Eventually they desimate the poor rhubarb.
Until that time, we do get a decent haul. This will be the rhubarb's 3rd summer at our house.
|First peak at the rhubarb|
There are many more to follow...but here is just a small sample of the variety of things you can do with rhubarb:
5 cups of cleaned, chopped rhubarb
1 big clean pot
a few table spoons of white sugar
heat rhubarb on stove with wooden spoon until mushy. Add sugar and stir. when rhubarb forms a runny paste...spoon over vanilla bean ice cream or soy alternative...
Enjoy every minute of the spring....it is full of life and growth.
Revel in the newness of EVERYTHING!
