My plant has basically gone crazy with the amount it is producing this year. Actually it split from one plant to three last year and now its just a totally awesome amount it produces.

I have already taken about 40 stalks off for coworkers and that was 2 weeks ago so its back to crazy amount ready to be picked again. I cant use this much for anything and I need to pick it so I have fresh stuff for two weeks from now for the family gathering.
I can check when I get home, but there should be enough for at least 3 or more pies.
Let me know today if you want to drop by to get some tonight or tommorow.
I "might" have some time tommorow to drop it off somewhere if someone wants...if my van is out of the shop in time... but it would pretty much have to be on my way to one end of the city or the other as I am fairly busy tommorow.

Rhubarb is like dill; a veritable weed that will grow in almost any place on your property. If you go to my moms place, you will see that dill and rhubarb are the last things she needs.

Dean, two weeks ago I would have killed you for that rhubarb! Now I found a garden owner down the backlane that can't believe I'm going to eat that stuff! I've got the whole rhubarb plant to myself and I'm not divulging addresses either!! Wink
