Harris Teeter had rhubarb!


I think the produce manager was a little alarmed by the two women standing in front of the case with their jaws about on the floor, looking back and forth from the pretty pink bunches to each other and saying things like "can you believe it!" and "holy cow!"

The produce manager, it turns out, had never seen rhubarb before, either, so the mystery of how the heck it got to Blythewood only deepens. Rhubarb doesn't grow in South Carolina. Heck, people in South Carolina have never even heard of rhubarb. And it definitely does not ship well. So why would HT have it, and how did it get there?

I'd be more perturbed by this, but I get to go home and make strawberry rhubarb pie.
