Ramps

The Ramps (Wild Leeks) are just starting to poke up here in Washington County. Mostly from 2" to 3" out of the ground so far. Good bit late, which was to be expected after the hard winter. My Garlic is also starting to poke up... 'bout the same size as the ramps. SOOO, things should get going a bit if we can hold some warmer temps. Morel's should be late compared to the past many years as well. BUT, that will be a good thing, as the unseasonal heat here in SW PA, has been killing the Morel season by the 1st week of May most of the recent past years.

Re: Ramps

I was going to take a drive past my local ramp patch to see if any were poking up yet. I transplanted some in the woods around my house last year. No sign of them yet but I'm hoping they took.

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

Re: Ramps

I have never found leeks in Cumberland county. I always find them in the northern counties of the state. Has anyone ever found them in York or Cumberland counties.

Re: Ramps

I was working in the yard yesterday and decided to check the woodlot next to my yard. Sure enough, the ramps were popping up. Time to go picking further into the woods.

The horizon is your starting point.

Re: Ramps

I haven't checked it yet, but I have an area in Cambria that is usually loaded. If anybody wants some and can keep their mouth shut, I'll share.

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.

Re: Ramps

Just got done picking a bunch here in chester county as they are just the right size to pickle up a bunch. Nothing like a campfire, cold beer and some pickled leeks mmmmm. Omelets in the morning!

Re: Ramps

Picked a Walmart bag full of ramps this past week in washco. Had enough to fill 3 racks on the dehydrater. They make a great homemade spice.
