Actually my patch has really filled in and is going to be ready to harvest in another week.
I am thinking rhubarb sauce, I cook down the stalks with a lot of sugar and throw in a can of pineapple, chunks usually. It's really good with roast beef. Sort of like cranberry sauce. Also good on toast or just in a sauce dish.
I need to work up the garden with the rototiller and add some sand to loosen up the soil, I went out with a hoe and it was as hard as a rock! But the weeds are having no trouble breaking through. Sigh.
Back to Father Sanson's El Salvador quilt. I hope to finish it this week.

My venture into horse portraits has come to a good close. I think my Rosie quilt is finished. It is a piece that has pushed me forward, this one has over 300,000 stitches in it. Just a teaser, here is a close-up of her mane.
And the saddle is for sale since Skittles and I are retired from showing and for that matter riding. At 26 years old she doesn't owe me anything, we enjoyed many a safe ride, in the show ring and the back yard.
