Yes, I waited for the rhubarb to drop before I added the additional strawberries. I didn't want to displace too much mead at once. I also added the vanilla, lemon, and thyme with the rhubarb, as soon as it went to secondary.
Here is the amounts I used (found in my original post near the end):
New Revised Recipie: (Final revision, I hope)
12 lbs. Clover honey
½ cup of raisins
~4 Gallons water (fill to 5 gallon level)
1 pack of D47, 71B, or Montratchet wine yeast (still deciding)
12 lbs. of frozen strawberries (Juiced, if possible)
3 lbs. of rhubarb
2 Vanilla Beans
Zest from one lemon
1 teaspoon of Thyme
2 lbs. Clover honey or
strawberry juice to taste
