The same thing happens every year; the rhubarb sends out new leaves and for the past ten years, I’ve not paid the process too much attention.
But look at these leaves, they are an architectural thing of beauty. How is that I’ve been too busy or focused on other things to stop and pay proper attention before?
Here is Fulton’s Strawberry Surprise. The custard is on stand-by…
Just beautiful. Like a rugged rocky landscape! Have you forced yours? We had our first rhubarb and custard yesterday and it was delicious.
Not forced this year, maybe next. If I can get myself organised in time…
Oh how I look forward to rhubarb. I have Timperley Early and Victoria but they’re a little late this year😕 Good luck for this growing season…
I think in comparison to recent years, everything is behind – but perhaps 2018 has just reset to what used to be normal. Looking to seeing your rhubarb bakes
Amazing colour to those leaves. I won’t see seeing my rhubarb till the end of the month and it won’t have purple leaves.
I think it’s down to the variety
It’s always good the rhubarb appearing. xx
