I love rhubarb pie, but with the long cold winter we have had this year, I am going to have to stick with poutine for a while longer, at least until the ground thaws a bit and the garden starts to grow again.

Now, that's a plate of poutine.

Pass me a fork, please!

Crazy. Mine is doing well but nowhere near that size yet. But I planted more! And I'm eating fresh asparagus every other day now.

Not to rub it in Jim .... but we topped 60F+ today. Have had lots of nice sunny weather but its cold.

The snow will be gone soon ....

"Poutine"!! Everyone around here calls it "loaded fries" but you folks up there have to give it a hoity-toity-sounding French name...

At least you may have put a stop to a real rhubarb here.

Poutine or Rhubarb - not a favourite. After looking at this post I looked at my rhubarb plant today, it has already bolted to seed.

I just read the prior post about retiring to Canmore or Victoria. Good reason not to consider Victoria area, rhubarb grows too fast.

Victoria is a great place to live, climate, culture, excellent restaurants, lots of brew pubs - but ya gotta drive 3.5 hours to go skiing. Remember, home is where you hang your hat!

You're supposed to remove those seed stalks.

Although I have pulled the seed stalks on rhubarb all my life, it sounds brutal to me now to eliminate a living thing that has “gone to seed” seems personal now.

Yikes, mines gone to seed also. It says that "the older the rhubarb is, the more it goes to seed". Your right, it does seem personal.

Well this seed is about to go to compost. I like my strawberry/rhubarb pies too much to let it waste energy making flowers.
