From one perspective, the headline today is that the rhubarb is coming back. The llama poop treatment worked. The crowns still need TLC (on my chore list—knock the surrounding weeds back!! Let there be light!), but progress is happening. This may be the year’s only picking…the plant is a quarter to a third as robust as it should be.
These plants make the deepest darkest reddest rhubarb sauce I’ve ever seen. Sooooooo satisfying.
We threw ourselves into prep, cleaning and food, and turned out a fine meal for six, yum, rather proud of ourselves. Very good time!
Served the rhubarb sauce over ice cream for dessert….
