I totally forgot about the geography gap between us. I'm in central Mississippi. Strawberries have been in here for awhile now. They come in really early - sometimes in mid- March, but usually by early to mid April. It's been really wet this spring and it's been cold (tee hee hee. That's a relative term. Days have ranged from 68 to 80 and nights drop to high 50s up to high 60s) We've had a lot of thunderstorms with hard rain, wind, and hail. The poor strawberries are trying keep their roots in the ground and their little heads above water. The few I've seen have been huge this year and really juicy, probably because of the rain, but they aren't as sweet. They are usually totally gone (local ones) by late May. Most years,things here begin to bloom in early March.

I'm not familiar with rhubarb. I have an aunt in Missouri that loves rhubarb pie. I'd like to bake her one (she's in her 70s now)the next time I go up, but I don't have a clue. I don't know if I can even buy it here. I live in Plum Nelly - you know, Plum outta the city and Nelly outta the county. This is not the end of the earth, but you can see it from here! If I can buy it here, I don't know that I would recognize it if I saw it. Any tips, pointers, suggestions?
