The stems on rhubarb that i have seen are strong enough to hold up the leaves, and the leaves in your pic seem to be a little elongated compared to the pic in the next post.
But, Like I said, I'm no expert.

Rhubarb will grow spindly like that if the soil and light are not that good. It looks to me like it was fighting for some light and most likely came up under some of the scrap lumber.

I had scrap wood piled up over it, then they poked through. I removed the wood to find this.

So, yes, they were fighting for light.

My wife made a strawberry rhubarb pie a few weeks back and it was great.
