First Rhubarb of the Year.

first rhubarb of the year 2009

Today I lifted the bucket and picked the first rhubarb of the year.

I’ve never felt as happy that spring is here as I have this week. The willow tree is unfurling it’s leaves, and the warmer weather* has dragged us outdoors more than usual, for evening walks, and morning walks, and time spent digging (W), and sitting (me) and sleeping (fb) at the allotment.

* Jaq (via text yesterday): I’m wearing sandles!

Me: Me too!

(Note: Getting the dyeing up and running again is taking longer than I hoped, and it’s something that is going to need patience – from me – to get working properly and safely. But I will get there, and there will be new stock in the shop soon. ish.)

  1. Rhubarb, yum! I planted a crown of rhubarb last weekend so I’ll have my own next year.
    Have you tried it with vanilla? It’s extra yummy.
