Ruby Red Rhubarb

Rhubarb is an easy to grow and common garden fruit (Which is actually a vegetable!)

We saw the fresh shoots poking out of the ground a few weeks back, and covered the crowns with boxes and buckets. Two weeks later, and we shared a harvest of “forced” bright pink sweet stalks .

This was half of the haul, which we then saw for sale in the supermarket for over £8 per Kilo.

…with more pickings to come throughout the coming season.
