As one of the first harvest of the year to ripen from late march into early april, rhubarb commemorates the first hopeful signs of spring. Its tart pink “petioles” are enjoyed in nostalgic homemade jams and warm pies, and while their large green leaves are not edible, they are one of the early signs of an abundant garden, and some even flower: a sure sign of a warmer front.
I hope that this black and white illustration of the harvest inspires you in its fearlessness in being one of the first crops of the year to break the frost: a breath that you can see in the cold air as it whispers “be brave.”
