Blue Skies Sunshine Rhubarb Asparagus

We met down in the Main garden today to dig up some strawberry and raspberries to pass along to Open Door's gardeners.  We found spring asparagus growing in the shade of the raspberries.  
We'll be able to pick the asparagus and rhubarb next week, and judging by these flowers, won't be long till strawberry picking time.

Srawberries Green Onions Rhubarb

 The strawberries, onions and rhubarb are already well on their way, despite the cold spring.  Here's a cool recipe we found for when they're ready to pick.

1 1/2 cup sliced strawberries   
     1 1/2  cup diced rhubarb
     1 tbsp. minced garlic
     2 chopped green onions
     1 tbsp. olive oil
     2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
     2 tbsp honey
     2 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary
        salt and pepper to taste

Saute garlic and onion.  Add remaining ingredients & bring to a simmer.  Stir frequently. Cook over medium/low heat until thickened, about 15 minutes.  Serve warm or cold with meat or cheese.
