Rhubarb Posts



Once upon a time I would not have guessed that I’d ever witness somebody stealing rhubarb, but yeah, that’s what this guy did behind our neighbors’ garage this afternoon.

Rhubarb on Rhubarb on Rhubarb: Chum’s 2013 Rhubarb Festival

You missed out if you weren’t able to make it out to the ninth annual Chum Rhubarb Festival this past Saturday. From rhubarb pies to rhubarb brats, the food pyramid was covered. Musician Charlie Parr headlined the festival with a performance in the afternoon. Here’s a sample of that tasty day!

What happens when you let rhubarb have its way

This plant made itself a home on the brick patio when I was a kid, and on a clay/sand bed, no less. It sits next to canisters of oil and fuel. We’ve done everything to oust it, but it always comes back. Not that I really want to get rid of it since I like the stuff, but talk about a hardy plant. The vertical woody stems are around 8.5 feet. Suggestions? Other than digging out the whole yard?

Makes me think of Rick Moranis for some reason.
