2 c. rhubarb, cut into 1″ pieces
1 1/2 c fresh strawberries, cut in half (quarters)
1 c white sugar

4 tbsp. flour

1/2 tsp. nutmeg (or more to taste)

Place strawberries and rhubarb on bottom crust.  Mix all other ingredients well; pour over top and spread around fruit.  Top with solid crust or make a lattice weave for top crust; flute edges.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Turn down to 350 degrees and bake pie for 45 – 60 minutes or until crust looks perfect or until rhubarb is soft.
