How does something giant manage to hide in the veggie patch? I did a little weeding and discovered the giant rhubarb in the corner, quietly pushing its inch-thick stalks skyward, the enormous leaves flapping gently on the ends. The new growth is incredible – a compressed mass of verdant energy ready to explode in slow motion, gently but persistently, into the world. I foresee rhubarb tarts in the making.
