My rhubarb - a dozen large plants - was also looking very healthy till the gales arrived on Sunday night. It's now looking very flat with nearly all the stems broken off at the base. I shall let it flop and go limp and then divide it between the .compost heaps.
I usually force one or two plants for early spring crops then leave those to rest and pick from the other plants - lots of stewed rhubarb, baked rhubarb, crumbles, cakes and chutney. Yum! But not after July as I have arthritic bits and OH gets gout occasionally.
