I've been looking forward to harvesting some rhubarb from the allotment and the time was finally right. There's quite a large patch on my new plot, there's these two clumps as well as another clump which wasn't photographed which hasn't yet grown quite as large as these two. They must all be different varieties which I'm pleased about as it should prolong the harvesting period. I've also got a crown of Stockbridge Arrow waiting to be planted out.
I don't usually make a roast dinner on a Sunday, we usually have our Sunday dinner on a Monday, but I'd asked my mum and dad round for dinner on Sunday so I made roast beef, Yorkshire puddings and all the trimmings. I visited the plot on Saturday and harvested the first rhubarb of the season with a view to making a pie for dessert.
I forgot to take a photo of the pie before it was cut in to, but this is a photo of what was left after everyone had eaten their fill. Don't look at the nasty brown bit where the filling had bubbled out of the pastry, we'll just ignore that.
I'd harvested enough rhubarb to make a second pie which I gave to my mum and dad to take home with them as rhubarb pie is their absolute favourite. I actually prefer a crumble so that's next on the cards.
