Leaf after leaf of the rhubarb keeps ending up like this - brown.
The plants themselves seem to be healthy.
Guesses are welcome!

Isn't this a natural occurance as the leaves get older and are replaced by younger ones? I guess I'd want to know how quickly this is happening.

Also, did you look around for pests? Maybe something like aphids sucking the juices?
