Mine is growing, and producing, but the stalks aren't very big in diameter

    Hello Marcia, Rhubarb season is about over, depends where you live. I'd give it some more time.

    if they get too big, they become stringy - try to harvest at 1/2 in or so

    If you keep harvesting, you can prolong their season quite a bit -mine in northern Wisconsin is still going strong.

      Thanks! I'm still getting mine too, it's just that the stalks aren't very big. I'm in mid Michigan
