URBAN FARMER - JUNE MINI HARVEST
Just a portion of what I harvested a few days ago. Already eating potatoes, onions, garlic, spinach, chard, kale, strawberries, and rhubarb!
Strawberry Mint Rhubarb Cobbler!
Peel 4 stocks o' rhubarb, chop, and add to stove pot with a sprig of mint leaves, and the juice of one lemon. Cook at medium low heat until rhubarb is delicious mush (approx. 10 minutes or so). Remove from stove, add 2 cups fresh strawberries, mix up!
Mix 1 cup flour, 1 cup oats, 2/3 of a stick of butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 egg, 1 cup walnuts (optional), and 1 tbsp cinnamon.
Grease baking bread pan (approx 8 inch x 4 inch), pour fruity mush mixture into the bottom of the pan, add the flour, etc. to the top, spreading evenly, and pat down firmly. Bake 45 minutes at 350, VOILA! If you have rhubarb, mint, and June berries, this is a perfect treat from your garden!
