One of the first plants to make an appearance in my garden is always rhubarb, that old midwestern standby that used to be in everyone’s yard. I do have a patch, and yes, the starts came from my mom on the farm. Every year I make pies and cakes to remember the taste of home. This year I tried something new, a fool and a spritzer.
Rhubarb originated in China and was cultivated for medications as early as 2700BC.
