    My mouth is watering…..

  2. We have spring here too but it is still very chilly. I love rhubarb and mine is coming up at the bottom of the garden 🙂

  3. I have a recipe for rhubarb custard pie — it might be the same thing. Jim is the pie baker here. We still have LOTS of rhubarb in the freezer from last year! Need to get busy with it, as the new growth is fast and furious.

  4. The signs are looking good!!

    Would you be willing to share the recipe? I would dearly love to take some rhubarb and a new recipe when I visit my daughter in Alabama later this month. Ours will be ready to pick and I should be able to take some through security… It is her rhubarb, but I get to keep it until she is out of the military.

  6. There is nothing left of that pie, am I right? Yummy!!!
    Lovely to see the plants!

  7. Maybe it’s because I’m further north. But my plants are not up nearly as high as yours. I see a very familiar little boy there with his jar of fireflies.

    Yum Yum…my Aunt used to bake the most delicious rhubarb pie! The spring flowers are looking good. Cuddos to you all who can grow Tulips; here in Texas, if you plant tulips they are only good for one season unless..you dig them up every year and keep in refrigerator. Happy Spring!!
