Days of Sun & Rhubarb


The day started yesterday picking up freshly harvested broad beans and snow peas from Spreyton; then, rhubarb from grower Tim in Latrobe, snapped here with his vintage seed and fertilizer drill that he still uses for the purpose. Couldn't help but notice the name in inverted commas on the side in raised type: "Sun". Bit different to the corporate slogans preferred today... And the day ended at Libby's on the slopes of Mount Arthur, drinking her rhubarb cordial spritzers at sunset, along with a 1994 magnum of Clover Hill she'd saved especially for a moment like this...

I'm sure the Clover Hill was wonderful. It's my favorite Tassie wine.
I love the idea of rhubarb spritzer. Il look for a recipe.

I'll ask Libby for hers in the meantime... and the Clover Hill was too good for words ;-)
