Ask Chef Boy Ari

By Chef Boy Ari

Q: Dear Chef Boy Ari,

My German grandmother always had washing machine-sized rhubarb plants, with massive red and green stalks and leaves the size of cookie sheets. Despite adding fish emulsion, horse shit and compost, my rhubarb still remains minuscule.

I've even split up the massive root system, and all have sprouted. But all are small. What gives? How can I make Gramma proud?
