Thinning out the early rhubarb plant in the centre of the plot

I have done some major thinning of the big rhubarb plant in the centre of the plot. This rhubarb plant has been established for at least two years and it has done very well this year.

I have harvested at least 24 stems of rhubarb from this plant today (possibly this might be a little bit too much). But, I will leave this plant from now on for the rest of the year — without harvesting anymore. My other rhubarb plant is starting to grow vigorously now and this should be good enough for late rhubarb.

Back home: rhubarb crumble and custard pudding tonight. Mmmm.. 😆
