Ramp?

Was out looking for morels today, and came across a big patch of these. Are these ramps? If they are, is there a point when they are no good for digging? Better when they're younger? I dug a few up but left the rest because I wasn't sure. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

No luck today on the morels.

Re: Ramp?

Those are ramps and they're fine to eat at any size.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: Ramp?

Now I've never picked these before and plan on going back to get them early this week. Is it best to leave some behind for next year?

I try not to over pick any spot. They can definitely be wiped out.

Re: Ramp?

The places I have picked I don't think you could pick them all. Just patch after patch.

Re: Ramp?

If the patch is small than don't over pick. I used to dig them in Potter where the patches were so big you didn't where to start first. Now's a good time to dig them cause you can eat leaves and all. I just sautee them in a big frying pan with some butter! Once the leaves start turning yellow the bulb gets tough.

Re: Ramp?

Definitely be sure not to over harvest them. They reproduce slowly. I planted a few outside my house in the woods about four years ago and they are growing, but not quite doubling each year.
