One of my friends and neighbors recently split a rhubarb plant they had growing behind the garage and shared it with me! It arrived in the mail yesterday. From Long Island. That's in NY. From my neighbor who lives 1,036 miles away!
As I've said many times before, the internet is both a curse and a blessing -- bringing us so close together while we remain so far apart.
Well, it'll probably sound sappy (that's ME!), but I'll nurture this little rhubarb plant as a reminder of the blessings -- and I can't wait 'til next spring! It's hard to believe that I've never had a rhubarb plant of my own. Originally, I was going to put it behind my garage -- it's a "behind the garage" kind of plant -- but there was a perfect spot behind the house, just at the bottom of the stairs.
Thank you, Ann!
