rhubarb picking for jam

this morning went rhubarb picking at Dads
he gave permission but he is not home
so I brought my neighbor to help out

she is a city gal and didnt even know what it was.
she goes it looks like celery! LOL

elephant ear leaves.
she thought they were huge

I could have made an umbrella with one it was so big
she thought that was funny

of course I have to act silly and got caught 
doing a "can can" dance LOL
oh my!  gotta remember cameras are everywhere these days

she won for the biggest leaf for sure.
look at the size of that thing! WOWZA
and it had a HUGE stalk attached to it
as well

she met a deer friend in the woods

old chicken coops
she was amazed at the "farm"

Can can or burlesque? I am envious my rhubarb is not near as big as your dads. What a pretty outing though.

I wish I could get my rhubarb to grow like that! Mine is puny in it's second year even though I feed it and baby it like it's a little kid. My mouth is watering just thinking about all that sour goodness.

We love rhubarb! Ours hasn't done well at this house. Strange b/c it usually grows splendidly anywhere.
