Steve,

Have you ever ate ramps? My dad loves em'. I never cared much for eating them but I am not much for onions either. Dad puts ramps in eggs and also ramps in poke salad.

I like em in the woods!

I've posted a few more images of this forest to the new "Gallery" feature of the BBS, a link here: http://www.ents-bbs.org/gallery/album.php?album_id=8

James, I haven't tried ramps yet because I always find them on park properties where they can't be harvested---but they sure smell like onions. Is the top or root, or both, eaten?

Steve,

Monica and I will probably leave Florence, MA on June 15th. We'll make eastern Ohio on June 17th. So if we can visit a good spot or two as we cross Ohio, that would be sooopa dooopa. As June 15th draws closer, I'll refine the schedule. I do hope we can connect.

Steve,

Most people eat the root bulb, just like an onion.
