I wrote about this house earlier, how it had a metal auction sign in the front, but the folks connected with the auction said it wasn't their house. I figured the sign was put there for some deceptive reason. So on this particular day, I removed the sign and put it in the back yard.
Along the way, I noticed some thriving rhubarb. A month from now, I might have to be a good neighbor and help tend this yard by, oh gee, dealing with excess rhubarb growth.
Easy way to tell rhubarb from weed that looks quite similar: rhubarb has glossy leaves. Which are, by the way, poison to eat.
