    1. I wish they were mine! I took this photo at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons. I can only imagine what culinary delights they created from these plants.

  6. Looks like you will have a LOT of crumble - are they all in your garden? I'm looking forward to the first harvest soon. You've reminded me to go and water mine!

    1. If these were all my plants, there would be a national custard shortage! Enjoy your first harvest!

  7. Now that is a lovely sight. I only have one Rhubarb plant and must buy more as I am finding that Fruit is easier to grow than Vegetables in our Garden. Marion

    1. You must buy more, Marion!... and you are probably a better veggie grower than you think as rhubarb is one of those cheeky veggies which masquerades as a fruit in the UK (I believe that a court ruled that it was a fruit in the USA in the 1940's).

    1. I hope you've eaten plenty of crumble since then! It is my Sunday sin... and if I make too much, it is a Monday sin. Sadly, however much I bake, it never seems to make it to Tuesday.

  9. Oh rhubarb! I still have some rhubarb jam left from last year, but it just doesn't have the same bite as fresh rhubarb pie... yum.

  13. What a gorgeous photo. I do love a good crumble

  14. I love, love, love Rhubarb!! This is my favourite crumble, pie, jam, you name it! Where I used to live, the elderly man at the end cottage grew this under one of these pots and used to call me to his garden a couple of times a year to pick it and then make lots of crumble to share with the neighbours (in other words, he didn't want to cook the stuff!!). I'm going to have to go and buy some now!! Have a great weekend. xx

    1. Doesn't it? I think if I won the lottery, I might spend a considerable quantity of my winnings on rhubarb forcers.
