  • I love rhubarb. As a kid growing up, we had a large bed of rhubarb and asparagus.

    I have tried growing rhubarb three times but I think last year was the most successful and despite the cold winter temperature, all four plants came up and I have cut enough to fix the Strawberry Rhubarb pie. Yum! It was quite the hit at the Derby Party along with Coconut Cream Pie and Bourbon Pecan Pie.
