Rhubarb Wine: Rhubarb needs love too

The short thin stalks on this rhubarb plant are from neglect


It’s easy to grow. It’s hardy. You don’t have to do much for it. Well, that’s all true of rhubarb, unless you want to harvest a good crop. My first harvest of the year was pretty good, and better than last year. That made me feel pretty good about how the rhubarb patch was doing, and I neglected it for other things. I didn’t weed, fertilize, or water (it’s easy to grow, after all), and it looks like I won’t be harvesting this month. I didn’t take a “before” picture, because I was too embarrassed. Here’s what it looks like now.
