Rhubarb in the Rain

This time of year, there's so much to do that you can't let a little rain keep you inside.  While rhubarb is a major ingredient in some of my favorite desserts, it isn't something we have a lot of yet, and it takes a couple years to get established.  Thankfully, we took a big step forward yesterday when we found an old rhubarb patch on our farm.  While it's a little later than ideal to transplant, we want to get it established in a better location and on its way to producing enough to sell, so I spent a good part of the afternoon today making that happen.  It was wet, it was muddy, and it was messy, but with less than half the patch moved, we've already got about 75 row feet of rhubarb.  Next year or the year after, that will make a lot of dessert!
