Yesterday I picked the first of my own rhubarb. It was just four stems which as you can see were finger thick and about nine inches long.That was enough to cut into inch pieces, gently stew for a couple of minutes then eat with a sprinkling of demerara sugar. Delicious!
On one of the leaves when I went to pick the stems was a less usual orange-yellow ladybird which I think was a 22-spot rather than a harlequin. I would have taken a photo of it but by the time I got the camera it had gone!
Have a good weekend!
