Rhubarb, asparagus & shiitake mushrooms.
I had dinner out with a wonderful friend last night and we were talking about how we both enjoy the creative challenge of making a meal from what's available. This is my first food harvest of the season. I think that it will be turned into a pasta carbonara with duck egg noodles, asparagus, mushrooms and dandelion greens. I am very lucky and grateful to have the land and skills to grow some of our own food; this will be a wonderful meal that costs pennies to make.
I'm looking for ideas for the rhubarb. Erica over at Northwest Edible Life recently posted a recipe for rhubarb shrub. Shrubs are uncommon in this country; it seems to be a concentrated sweet/sour drink made with fruit, honey and vinegar and will be added to iced soda water. It sounds fun.
I really need to sow winter and summer squash seeds in pots today. The spring side of the garden is nearly planted and two rows have been done on the summer side. The rest of the summer side needs tilled, hopefully tonight, so I can get the remaining the transplants in. We're well on our way.
