A good friend invited my kids and I over to her house to pick rhubarb. She had too many plants and could not use all of her spring crop. What a delightful activity on a sunny afternoon for the kids! They had so much fun peeking under the giant rhubarb leaves and deciding which stems were fat enough to pick. The Moms did the slicing, separating out the leaves from the stems which we used later to bake rhubarb muffins. I loved seeing the funny faces the kids made as they licked the stems and sampled the sour taste straight from the garden. Note: With rhubarb, be sure to steer clear of the leaves which are known to be harmful.
