She’s Back, She’s Big and She’s Beautiful

23 May

That’s right folks, I’m talkin about Audrey.  Actually, I think she’s fuller at this point than she was last July when I first posted about her.

I was getting ready to cut out some of the ripest stalks but I thought I should take her picture first.
It never occurred to me 2 years ago that our rhubarb would get so big as to block the sun from the other plants growing there.

This isn’t even the biggest leaf, it’s just the only leaf one I could get the dollar bill to stay on for the picture.

I cannot believe how thick some of her stalks are.
Guess what I’m cutting up and freezing today?

I did this just to show how long one stalk is but yes, I WILL cut off the leaf and toss it.

Here she is from the deck.
In about 10 minutes she’s gonna be a whole lot smaller and it almost makes me feel bad!  How silly is that?
