Has anyone noticed fresh, local rhubarb available in the stores yet? I'm at Danforth and Vic Park but willing to drive.

  1. I bought some hot house rhubarb at the St.Lawrence Market recently. Most rhubarb I've seen is pale green and red, but the hot house variety tends to be thinner and have a beautiful pink colour.

    1. You should be seeing it within the next week or so - outdoor grown stuff. We live near Peterborough and my garden rhubarb is getting close to pickable size. And I don't have a warm garden - if it were beside the house it would have been gigantic by now.

      1. Has anyone seen rhubarb in basic stores like Loblaws or Sobeys anywhere yet??
