  • Rhubarb, the taste of nostalgia

    Rhubarb is a nostalgic vegetable that many Spencer County residents remember from childhood.

    “My daddy always had rhubarb,” said Mary Snyder, who lived on a 400-acre farm near High Grove for many years.

    Snyder, who was “born and raised just over the Nelson County line near Bloomfield,” said that when her father cleaned out the hen house, he would put the manure around the rhubarb patch to fertilize it.

    “We always had nice fat big stalks, bigger than your thumb,” said Snyder.
