I Love RHUBARB!! Rhubarb sauce, rhubarb dumplings, rhubarb cake, rhubarb pudding, and lots more are a spring tonic to wake up your taste buds from the root vegetables of winter! Rhubarb is the first “fruit” of the season.

The earth has come ALIVE with new flavors! rhubarb says, “Wake UP! Have fun! Spring has sprung!” My grandmother cooked rhubarb sauce and then put it on vanilla ice cream,- simple and yummy! I love pairing it with raspberry, putting in on meats, in a barbecue sauce, and in a myriad of desserts.  Rhubarb’s complexity of taste always reminds me of the complexities of life as well.  Is it a vegetable or a fruit? The Rhubarbs of life–how complicated can it be? In the meantime, take time to Taste, to LIVE, to ENJOY LIFE!

The cows still get milked, baby calves are born throughout the year. Farm work never stops, we just add a gorgeous view of winter from the tractor seat! Chores have their own sparkle in the winter sun.

A winter’s day here on the farm. Snow is falling, Dave is plowing, the kids will go out sledding soon. Bob and Tom lead Penny in for the night.
