Rhubarb excavations

We have an abundance of rhubarb, and some of it had to give to make room for a new bed, reclaimed from grass. Strenuous work was involved, worth at least an afternoon at the gym:

I hadn't realised quite how...prehistoric rhubarb roots were.

Worth it, though.

They are prehistoric, aren't they? They also make a great natural dye. I got a neat salmon colour out of one batch I tried a few years ago.

Thanks so much for the blog link!
