Why are my rhubarb stalks so thin?

My rhubarb plants are two years old and the stalks are still quite thin. Is there a method I should be using so that they grow thicker?

Your rhubarb stalks are probably so thin because you have grown them in a place that has too much heat. Your stalks might also be thin because the crown is becoming crowded and overgrown. In this case, you will need to trim the crown to about 4 to 5 buds. See http://gardening.about.com/od/vegetables/a/Rhubarb.htm for more details.
