You're in the rhubarb now my dear...

Eat the rhubarb.
EAT IT.
I can't bring myself to cut the flower. It's amazing...

That reminds me of the house where I grew up. We had a couple of HUGE rhubarb plants that grew basically wild out back by the garage.

Thanks for the memory and the smile.

Cut the flower!

You won't have any rhubarb next year if you don't.
Okay, you'll still have rhubarb, but it won't be as nice because the plant puts all it's energy into the flower instead of storing it in the roots. Your plant could winterkill.

Other than that, I am totally jealous of the size of those rhubarb stalks and leaves! Incredible!
You DO know you can make castings of the leaves to make decorative things (like a big freakin' birdbath!), don't you? Get a big cardboard box, fill it partway with sand, humped up in the middle, lay the leaf on the sand "face" down, then put cement on it. When the cement dries, you peel the rhubarb leaf off and you'll have a really cool concrete "leaf".
With the size of those leaves, you might want to get a couple bags of cement...... :D

Your bird house is amazing. If I was a bird I would definitely live want to live in a bird house like that.
