Plentiful Bounty

   Rhubarb cake last week and a rhubarb crumble today - maybe it's time for a batch of jam. I usually wait until the local strawberries are ready as I like the combination, but the rhubarb is coming on gangbusters.

   A bit cooler today so no swim, and we had heavy rain this afternoon. The garden benefitted from a good soaking. Luckily I had cut the grass yesterday as it will be growing like crazy again.


  1. I have been debating whether to pick some rhubarb from my plant that I moved last year. I have a great orange rhubarb loaf recipe ... I was glad of the rain yesterday as both the gardens & lawn were looking quite thirsty, saves on the water bill! ... Mary-Lou =^..^=

  2. Usually a new plant needs a year or two before picking, but if you just moved an existing plant, I think it's OK to pick from it, IMHO
