[cg] rhubarb

Good morning,
I am having trouble properly cultivating our rhubarb.  It goes immediately 
from new foliage to growing the flower head.  How should I go about 
cultivating rhubarb so that it produces edible fruit stalks? at least 3/4 
inch thick.  The ones we can harvest from these plants are about 1/4 inch 
thick and not very tastey.  It would take a million plants to harvest enough 
for a pie at this rate.  We've had the same plants for three years now and 
put cow "moo doo" around them for fertilizer.  Thank you. Jackie
