Another local favorite is rhubarb. This tart and tasty herbaceous perennial is often thought of as a fruit, but it is actually a vegetable. Frequently paired with strawberries rhubarb is a favorite jam and pie filling. As rhubarb leaves are poisonous, care should be taken that all leaves are carefully discarded away from pets and children.
