Oh, if it's the red, you definitely want to pick the more red ones, but it can be green as well and not mean it was picked too early or anything. I just want a little acceptance for green rhubarb is all.

Why don't you make rhubarb shortcakes, xcptnl? I also love that rhubarb country cake I made last year (kind of like a cobbler). But I'm definitely all about galettes/crostadas right now or all the time, really.

Here is the rhubarb custard pie SO and I made last weekend. I did the crust, he made the filling using his mom's recipe.





We had it with our Memorial Day dinner, with homemade frozen custard [we didn't plan it, we all made stealth desserts and it just worked out that way].

It was good. VERY good.

Rhubarb shortcakes sound yummy! I never ended up getting any rhubarb this weekend but SO is traveling this week so I may track down a farmers market this week and get some! I did see a lady who sells fruits and veggies a her house had some out as we whizzed by this weekend so I may start there. That is still supporting my local farmer/neighbor.

Assuming you want to come to Colorado to do it.
We'll see if they survive. We put them in a good spot so they get the dew coming off the roof every morning. I'll still have to hand water until the snow falls I think.

The first of some rhubarb baking today:







Rhubarb almond cake that I baked in round liners for easier, prettier transporting. It's a tender buttermilk cake with almond and vanilla flavoring the batter and thinly sliced rhubarb for tartness and a custardy texture.

Part 2: Rhubarb strawberry galette:


For eating by itself, it could use more sugar. Great to pair with ice cream or cream as is.

I've never prepared anything with rhubarb. I don't really know how.
So I opened a cookbook and made a strawberry rhubarb pie. It actually wasn't difficult at all. Rhubarb is a lot like celery.

*feels accomplished*

Well my rhubarb has been in for not quite 2 months and seems pretty happy in it's new home. You can only see 5 due to the weeds but there are 8, I got 3 extra when the order arrived. I'll weed the rest once it cools off.

They are so cute!

We made rhubarb slushes, which were very tasty.

They're definitely enjoying the afternoon/evening showers we've been getting.

The rhubarb on year 2 appears to be pretty happy:


The pie I made today, which is about to come out of the oven.
Before 2nd half of the sugar:

My favorite farmstand has rhubarb and strawberries. I'm going to try to make a pie this weekend!

Strawberries are almost done here and my spinach is bolting already. This makes me very sad. Between my spinach, baby beet greens, arugula, and baby Swiss chard, I've been getting a salad out of my garden every day.

But on the plus side, my La Ratte potatoes are going NUTS, I almost have peas, and the tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, carrots, leeks, and onions are growing like crazy too.

This totally isn't about rhubarb, but divegirl do you have any issues with bugs on your leafy greens and getting them off? I feel like I waste more water rinsing each individual leaf getting the critters (and sometimes eggs it looks like) off than it's worth. Is there a better way to wash this stuff than I'm doing which is rinsing under the faucet. I feel it's the only way I can get all the riff-raff off so I'm not eating weird bug eggs or something. I don't know what to put on the plants in the garden to help control pests that isn't toxic. We have kale and spinach which both have lots of nooks and crannies in the leaves.

Gardening...so much to learn still.
