Feed the soil and it will feed you....that's the 1st law in organic
gardening. Rhubarb contains an alkaloyed and cannot be eaten unless it
has been cooked. The stems make fine fillings for pies. It is a
rhizome, so I imagine that it would be reproduced/planted in that
manner. I never saw rhubarb flower! Micro, not a microbe!
