End of season rhubarb

We were expecting a hard freeze (in the 20's F) last night so I figured that we should cut the rhubarb and get it hauled into the house. Four plants filled up the wagon behind the tractor. Once we trimmed the leaves off we had two five-gallon buckets full of rhubarb stocks. I think that once Cristy cut them up and washed them we had about four gallons worth of rhubarb headed to the freezer.

Normally we will cut down the rhubarb a couple of times during the season. It appears that we were busy this year and only cut them back this one time.
