: I was wondering if anyone has ever heard the phrase, Do you think the rain will hurt the rhubarb, and if so
: could you please tell me what it means.
I used to harvest rhubarb for my grandmother when I was young.She had a whole field of it. When harvesting it you cut it off close to the roots.It must then be separated and laid out.We would do this to the whole field then leave it overnight to dry slightly.If it rained after it was laid out it could rot.Dew was okay but rain was not.
