Oh please, oh please

Against my better judgment, I planted more rhubarb, just because I want it so very badly. Please let it not die. I gave it a whole bag of composted manure. It has to be growable here, or they wouldn't sell it at the Feed & Seed, right? Right?

Has anyone else here ever bought a Sophie Grigson cookbook? I recently ordered this one, and although I have yet to cook a single recipe, I think I am in love with it. She's all about heirloom fruit, seasonal produce, free-range organic meat, etc. She comes up with unusual combinations, but somehow they seem natural and appealing, not fusion-y in that weird way that many chefs are guilty of. I can't wait to cook the dishes she describes!
