Then magically, it started growing this spring--and it grew fast. It got bigger and bigger and bigger and I didn't do a thing! Definitely my kind of gardening. However I did do a bit more research and came across an article saying to pick just a bit at a time and the rhubarb will continue to grow and you'll be supplied all summer long, so that is what I plan to try. I made some more strawberry-rhubarb ice cream with the first batch I picked and decided to try making scones with the second batch. I made these scones last year with wild red huckleberries and thought rhubarb might taste good too.
scones using this recipe and they are delicious. I think the lemon zest is what makes them special. I do prefer the huckleberries more than the rhubarb, maybe next time I won't cut the rhubarb as tiny, or maybe I'll do huckleberries and rhubarb! Mmmmm. I might have to go and eat the rest right now.
