Early this morning I decided to pick my Canada Red Rhubarb. I only took 5 stalks from the many on the plant. Next year we will have even more as I planted two more plants in early Spring. Four stalks was just the right amount to make a pie.
Here are the five stalks that went into the pie. From the looks of the rhubarb plant there are a couple more pies yet to be harvested.
And here is the finished product. Yumm, can't wait to get a piece of this beauty. My wife makes the very best pies and around here they don't last long.
So between cutting, hauling, hand splitting and stacking fire wood today, a beautiful pie was also made. It doesn't get any better than this - from the garden to the table in 8 hours. Yumm.
