Yippee! I'm a rhubarb millionaire.
I was in Sainsbury's last night and spotted packs of rhubarb at �2.99 each. For that price I could take home 3 stalks. A kilo of rhubarb could have been mine for �4.97!
Why bother?My garden is coming down with the stuff. It grows itself.
Why so expensive? Ah yes! There's a worldwide shortage.Rhubarb gardens all over the place have been converted to the growing of biofuel crops. Or is it wheat? Or rice? Or the strawberries for Crunchy Breakfast Mix?
Off now to mail my phone number to Sainsbury's purchasing department.

Maybe the health food shops too. Someone posted on AB this week about constipation - you could have the whole world in your hands. Powdered rhubarb - now, that's a thought.
apropo of worldwide rhubarb shortage. Has anyone noticed there are no fig rolls in any supermarkets. According to my local Sainsburys this is due to a worldwide fig shortage, especially since the fires in Greece last summer. Sunday mornings in bed with a cup of tea and the crossword just arn't the same!
Rhubard shortage?!! Noooooo. I love the Stuff.

Derrynoose where do you live I'm coming to raid your garden!
