Rhubarb

Another unmistakable sign that we have turned the corner on winter is when the garden bares off and that dark brown soil starts soaking up solar radiation during the day.  It usually means that it doesn't take long to kick the rhubarb into action.  This plant must be one of the toughest of garden plants, we pay almost no attention to it year in, and year out except to water it.  We pick it mercilessly throughout the growing season offering it to friends and neighbors.  We make everything delicious out of it all spring and early summer and every year it just keeps going and going.  I do know that it loves cool weather and it needs a period of winter cold to do well.  All a perfect match for the Bella Coola Valley climate.  Grizzly
