It is early for it to be going to seed!

I thought so too @gjones, but I know nothing about rhubarb. I do know it grew and produced all summer last year, and I literally did nothing to it. I did not see it until we cleared some of the "jungle" we call a side garden.

I always pull the seed head's out. They take energy away from the plant.

Thank you Lisa. You are correct. However, my kids wish it would die quickly @travelgirl25 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Aww @SikoMa ☹ My husband thought he didn't like rhubarb until I found a recipe on Pinterest for Old Fashioned Rhubarb Cake. He tried it and actually liked it! I told him he wasted a lot of years not liking rhubarb.

Sure didn't wait long, did it? That is lush looking rhubarb. It's​ going to yield a lot. It looks just like mine, just more mature.

Lamo Laura. This is the one my 19 year old son stomped when it was just comin up. Maybe you should go stomp yours, and it will grow faster @columbiariver. If you swipe this pic. You'll see the other pics. 😬😨😂🤣

Don't move them unless you have to! They love being left alone, and undisturbed at all costs! ...... Ok, one of mine is a root section, (dug up chunk) from 1994!! - I grabbed it - along with other favorites - when I left my first husband! I stripped our acre of MY plants... 😒😨🙁
