*If anyone would like some rhubarb - I've got a lot and would love to give it to you. You could also get a Rhubarb start for your own garden. Come get it before I'm gone!
This dessert became an early summer tradition while living in Michigan. We had a huge strawberry patch and a rhubarb plant in the garden. They were both ready to harvest at about the same time. The kids would help pick the strawberries and cut off the rhubarb. Serve this with some good vanilla ice cream. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

3 cups hulled and sliced strawberries
1 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup flour
