Rhubarb, rhubarb, rhubarb...
I live in the middle of an organic flower and vegetable garden that I started forming ten years ago. It's bursting with flowers and bees and represents one of my most successful creations to date.
The rhubarb in my potager has been begging to be transformed into a crumble for a couple of days so I harvested it and made it into a temporary environmental art piece before cooking it up.
Four months ago I gave up eating sugar by using the mantra "sugar is poison," whenever confronted by chocolate bars in gas stations and supermarkets. I also converted all our weekly meals into vegetarian fiestas to see if turning into a bonifide greenie made me feel better.
