I was curious about the recipe, because we grow rhubarb too, so it would be another way to have it.

You can see our rhubarb in the background. This year, it's gotten the biggest it ever has!

Do you freeze any of your rhubarb or sweet corn?

We usually freeze about 50-60 quart bags of sweet corn.  Tests real good in the middle of winter.  Have not tried to freeze rhubarb.  Any ideas. ???

Love the way you have your garden with the grass growing in between :thumbs:   I tried that a few years ago but with the cover crop of winter rye left for walkways but it didn't take well to foot traffic  , is your grass anything special to keep it from spreading into planting areas ?

Yes. I don't remember how much sweet corn we froze last year. As for freezing rhubarb, I'll have to ask my dad & mom what they do exactly. It always seems to work well.

If your talking about my garden, the "grass", is just whatever grass and weeds grow there between the garden strips. If we have time, and conditions are favorable, we "plow" the strips with a shovel (before it is rototilled for planting, or after the crop has been taken off), which works well in keeping the yard from encroaching. During the growing season, we do have weeds that start to encroach, so we usually (during the growing season) use a weed trimmer or hoe or pull the weeds by hand. Usually, the best way we've found to keep an edge is by using a shovel along the edge to keep the grass and weed roots cut.

They wash the rhubarb, then cut the stalks into 1-inch lengths. The pieces are measured and poured into freezer bags.
