On the way back from preschool she had to hug every single tree she walked past, not sure if its early hippie tenancies or just a delaying tactic.
I love rhubarb, and its very easy to grow. Its just a case of planting it in a sunny spot and providing the soil around it with enough nutrients. Personally I just add grass cuttings around the base whenever the lawn is cut and this quickly rots down to provide all the nitrogen that the plant needs to make lovely thick stalks.
Of course it can take a year or so to become established before you can start picking it but after that you can pick as much as you like till midsummer, then I generally leave it alone unless I have a craving for a crumble.
