|My rhubarb patch in May..|
One of the first things I do when we get to Marble Mountain in May each year is check the rhubarb patch. I love rhubarb in any form: pies, juice, crisp, muffins, cobblers, sauces. Years ago I made a raised bed just for rhubarb and filled it with rich dirt brought in from the composted manure of a nearby horse farm. Rhubarb is a cool season plant and generally does well in Nova Scotia.
