Rhubarb is one of the earliest producers in Spring. It’s very easy to grow and it is a perennial, meaning that you plant it once and it will come up year after year. Many people get 20 years worth of harvest off of a single rhubarb plant.
That is a great return on your investment. And if you know someone already growing rhubarb, see if they can pass along a root or two when they dig their plants up to divide. Chances are they will be happy to get you growing!
Use rhubarb in all kinds of recipes, from jams to pies, stewed or added to homemade juices or sodas.
