A sure sign of spring is the rhubarb making its move in the garden – spreading out and staking its claim hoping you won’t notice how much territory it has actually taken over. If you leave it alone to do its thing, you will wake up one morning with it next to you in bed…give it an inch, it takes a mile. This cheeky little plant is actually a vegetable – not a fruit as most people think. Its leaves are highly toxic and they shouldn’t be consumed by people or animals. The only edible part of the plant is actually the stalk and has a bonus; it is a great source of vitamin c and iron.
