At least that's a tip I just received on proper harvesting of Rhubarb from my colleague Mike Pengra.
One of the many "fun facts" I just might use this Saturday when I host the Rhubarb Festival in Duluth.
It's a full day of music - including one of my most favorite, Peter Ostrouchko - a bake sale, silent auction, activities for kids and several contests.
If you're in Duluth, stop by and please let me know if it's best to tear or cut those rhubarb stalks!
