    I agree with Delores. Please don't eat the leaves. Throw them out. Rhubarb and strawberries makes a great pie.

    Right on ! Removing the stems makes the plant continue to grow; the more the plant is fed [manure] the larger it will grow as long as it also gets plenty of water. If the leaves wilt...time for more water. Happy eating!
