Mine was here when we moved in in 1982 and has been moved and split several times. Gets little or no attention.
I think "weed" is an accurate description.

I have one word for you rhubarb people. Piestengel. After you google that and read a few threads, you'll understand why the Amana Colonies, 15 miles from our home, is a regular stop for libations. Goes down easy and convinces you that you have superhuman strength for a couple of hours.

How did I know that the mention of ANY edible would inevitably lead to the mention of poutine?

I spent yesterday shoveling out the space where my 19 will go. I leave to get it tomorrow, here's hoping Ma Nature cooperates.

I have a recipe for a rhubarb meringue pie from my mom that is to die for.

And yes, strawberry rhubarb is a great combination.

One of my comfort foods, is plain old stewed rhubarb, with nothing but a bit of sugar. Oh yeah, and a couple fresh biscuits, and a scoop of ice cream in it too.
