Excellent! :))

9 Mar, 2012

 

wow the famous yorkshire rhubarb, it looks fantastic!
crumble for me please!

9 Mar, 2012

 

thanks Sheila, OH Sticki what am I going to do with you, mention Rhubarb and you want a crumble, Lol

9 Mar, 2012

 

well you cant have rhubarb without the crumble can you???

when i was little mum used to give us a stick of rhubarb and an egg cup full of sugar to dip it in!!

9 Mar, 2012

 

I really want to like rhubarb but I just dont!

9 Mar, 2012

 

Oh my goodness, Webmoose you don't like Rhubarb,you don't know what you are missing, Sticki I could'nt eat it like that, it must have been sour,even with the sugar

9 Mar, 2012

 

it was but we liked it ~ i think it was a bit like the poor persons version of sherbet??

rhubarb mousse and yoghurt is really nice and pie possibly even better!!

it also goes with Duck!! have you tried that webmoose???

9 Mar, 2012

 

I have a bag of the old fashioned sherbert here Sticki, Jo bought it for me from an old fashioned sweet shop, Duck with Rhubarb sounds nice,

9 Mar, 2012

 

almost like sweet and sour!

in a little old sweet shop near where i work they are making something that looks a bit like a bouquet ~ they use 50 wrapped sweets then each one is put on a stick with coloured fancy paper looking like a large flower around each sweet, then the sticks are pushed into a central holder so the whole thing looks like a big spherical bouquet!

9 Mar, 2012

 

gosh that sounds intresting, how much are they,might have you going shopping for me,

9 Mar, 2012

 

um a bit more than i hoped.

£19.99 cheapest!!

also they are at least a foot in diameter ~ bit hard to post???

9 Mar, 2012

 

Oh good grief, lets forget about that one Aye,

9 Mar, 2012

 

it was a bit of a surprise, but i can see why ~ there is quite a lot of work involved and they do look nice.

9 Mar, 2012

 

maybe you could go in with your camera and say my friend lives way up north and she is very intrested in placing an order for say 200 and she needs to see what they look like first,then take a photo and don't go back

9 Mar, 2012

 

they probably wouldnt mind me taking a photo ~ will try to get one next week for you

9 Mar, 2012

 

oh thanks,

9 Mar, 2012

 

Loos well healthy! I tried to grow it a few years ago, my Dad's friend gave us both a clump...Dad's does well, mine died :(

11 Mar, 2012

 

blimey you've been busy Yorkshire :-)

11 Mar, 2012

 

well being as the weather is so good for this coming week I thought I had better get them potted up, OH has his tomatoes potted and his runner beans, the beans are growing nicely, peas next,

11 Mar, 2012

 

sounds really good i did my toms today too.. i lost all my peas to the mice last year the little tinkers :-) good luck with yours Yorkshire :-)

11 Mar, 2012

 

I start all our peas off in plastic cups, like those you get from a vending machine, you can pick up 100 very cheap and use them time and time again, we let them grow until about 4" high then plant them out, why not try that S/L we had hundreds of peas

11 Mar, 2012

 

thanks i'll give it a try :-)

11 Mar, 2012

 

believe me you will be delighted, go to one of the £1 shops or wilkinsons, some cheap place, they work out about 1p each, if you get stuck let me know and I will try and sort some out for you,

11 Mar, 2012

 

S/L go to my photos and look at page 8 I have a photo on of the peas growing in the pots, then go to page 5 and see how they grow,

11 Mar, 2012

 

that's very kind of you Yorkshire thanks, i've a poundland here i'll try that tomorrow...

11 Mar, 2012

This looks really good Val. Gerry has just bought a crown and planted, although we have two in the ground already, about three years old and hope that this year we will get some sticks. We love rhubarb and I make crumble and pie with them.

16 Mar, 2012

 

my plant must be well over 15 years old Lin, its even larger now as to when I put this photo on last week, good luck with yours,

16 Mar, 2012

 

Thanks Val. Last year I bought some rhubarb from the local greengrocer shop and it was really lovely and kept it's shape when cooked and didn't pulp down.

16 Mar, 2012
