Rhubarb shoot

Rhubarb shoot

It sounds like the name of a pirate, but it actually means rhubarb in Italian.

I’ve never seen it for sale in Italy and I’ve never met anyone who knew what it was!

Except I suppose for the garden centres which sell little plants …

This is one of them, peeping up again after disappearing entirely for a couple of years.

I hope I get some decent stalks as I’m very partial to it!

    Our rhubarb is coming up too. Nice to see something growing in the garden inspite of the cold

      Everything does seem to be terribly behind this year, here as well.
