This is one of my rhubarb plants (Vermont's first fruit of the season!) — a rhubarb that I don't like. I was told it is "Canadian rhubarb" and good for our cold weather. But it's yellow, spindly rhubarb. I have another plant that is red and lucious and I can cut right through October. The more I cut it the more it grows, unlike this yellow one. So when I saw this rhubarb was flowering, I decided to use it to learn what happens to rhubarb when it flowers. This is what it looks like this week. I like the color of the buds. The pattern of the buds is fascinating me, also. I'll be keeping an eye on it daily to photograph the developments. I found a good site for rhubarb information here, but I don't recognize this yellow rhubarb there. When clicked, these photos will open, full size, in a new window.
If you have other recipes to share with me, I'd love to put them on my blog (fully linked to your blog!)
