hi I thought I would enter my rhubarb, though you cant eat the leaves of course ,these rhubarb have been on growing since the 1939 bushfires on my ex fatherinlaws family property

yes the home was burnt to the ground , but many years ago we all went back to the hills and found the old veg patch and lo and behold the rhubarb had survived
so thought I would enter it as its a survivor

yes the veg garden is not the tidiest but its a working veg garden so not all prim and pretty for the comp

I like to tell it how it is
