The photo below is the first full leaf that bloomed out on my rhubarb plant this spring! A neighbor gave me a start off of her plant that was originally from her grandfather. So she would call it an heirloom plant.
My dilema is that she told me you had to wait 5 years to use the stalks. Funny...with all the interesting things my parents exposed us to, rhubarb just wasn't on the list when I came along. I know it makes delicious pies, but I must educate myself on the amazing plant soon.
I'll take any help from you that you can give. So there it is! Now you know it is rhubarb. And is that beautiful crisp green leaf really poison?
