There are two seasons to my baking: Rhubarb, and Cranberry. My cranberries are absent from the freezer, so it must be rhubarb season. I did see a bundle at a grocery store in a small town, for seven dollars. Seven dollars! I passed it up. There are other sources, I reasoned. More affordable sources.
I have been wandering into Walmart every day this week, in their produce section, searching for rhubarb. In vain.
Every bad thing ever said about that store is believable to me, now. Not even for seven dollars, do they have any rhubarb. Not even frozen.
