Rhubarb plants

I have a rhubarb plant that keeps getting tubular stakes on it. The plant is still growing. This time the plant has what appear to be seeds (or flowers). I live in Upstate NY (Syracuse area). Can someone please advise what to do to keep my plant alive and surviving? I do have some stalks that are ready to harvest.

To keep the rhubarb plant productive, you will want to cut the flower stalks out of the plant.
