Cheers Claudine:)

Never eaten Rhubarb? Blimey, got to remedy that this year then:D You stew some up in a little bit of water and add sugar to taste, then put custard on top. Custard is being sold in Tesco's for 7p a packet at the moment, I bought loads of it.

I plant according to what will grow in my climate, with the exception of trying something new occasionally. We have a short growing season which can be quite cool at times, so anything that does require heat does better in a greenhouse. I have grown watermelon...or should I say, zucchini-melon: OOPS! :D

Climate in which your garden grows? Or do you throw caution to the wind & plant whatever you want with no regard to the weather? Here the climate is mostly mild, so I don't have the concerns of many of you, re: Snow, Sleet, excessive heat nor cold.

I do a combination of the two, just depends on what I want to try. Some things I have planted that are not recommended for my zone and if I like them enough and if am concerned about them not making it through the winter I will dig them up and bring them in if possible.

Is it tasty?:) I think I might try it:D . I remember my mother grew rhubarb in the garden when I was a child but we never ate it, I don't know why.
