Ready for Rhubarb

The First Rhubarb of the Season

I made a Rhubarb Cake with Rhubarb Sauce this week…the first one of the season. It’s rewarding to pick fresh food from our garden, and turn it into a yummy treat!

The next batch of rhubarb just might be used to make Rhubarb Potluck Pie…one of my favorites. This recipe makes a very large pan of rhubarb custard with an easy pie crust bottom and a crispy crumble topping. You can halve the recipe easily if you aren’t cooking for a crowd.

Our garden is also offering up all the Egyptian Walking Onions we can use (and then some), plus my Redneck Cold Frame is full swing with plenty of greens for salad. My peas and storage onions are coming along nicely and the potatoes should appear soon. There is still plenty to do in the garden!

What’s growing in your garden? Do you have rhubarb to harvest yet?
