My rhubarb plant is about to flower which seems very early. 

Can I continue to harvest this plant?

    Don't allow rhubarb to flower - it weakens the plant.  Take the whole flower stem out from the base and give the plant lots of water - a couple of buckets full today and more in a few days time.  It's probably the prolonged dry spell that has put it under stress.  I'd stop pulling stalks for this season unless it's very prolific.
