“In early spring the Indians must have looked forward as we do to the first fresh rhubarb. In official circles their rhubarb is known as Cow Parsnip. The first tender shoots of the spring were gathered and roasted over coals or cooked in much the same matter as our own rhubarb. Early settlers learning this gave it the local name of wild rhubarb.” Annora Brown. Old Man’s Garden
