Ginnie BakerThe garden is all planted but we continue to have more rain than we need here in Bellville.

The rhubarb is doing very well. The plants were starts from a relative’s garden from years ago so they have a long heritage that goes back to Maine. I’ve had them for 15 years and they produce well each year.

The rhubarb will become rhubarb bread from an Amish recipe and a family recipe for rhubarb sauce that goes well with a pork roast.

The strawberries are also ripening and that means strawberry and rhubarb preserves also from an Amish recipe.
