Young Ramps

What do young Ramps look like? ... I have been looking all around my property and do not seem to see any in the woods? ... I know folks on here are indicating they are picking them already all over the place ... I live about 20 miles north of Pittsburgh they should be out now right?

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Young Ramps

I live alittle north of you in saxonburg and I have never found any around us. Maybe they aren't in our area?

Re: Young Ramps

I know seems odd ... They should be in the area though ... They say they grow all the way up into Canada ... After reading on here the past few days that others in PA/OH have been picking them, I thought I would take a stroll through the woods last night and look for sum ... I have over 100 acres of woods to pick them in ... There has to be some in there

Re: Young Ramps

Re: Young Ramps

Ramps can be found all over the state, however, they are "patchy", meaning you just don't find them in most woodlots. Your best bet in finding a patch, it to walk along creek banks, and check moist hollows that run down to a creek.

Re: Young Ramps

Deer don't eat them, at least not that I know off; I imagine they're too pungent for them. Yeah, I don't understand why leeks aren't wide spread up here in the northern parts of the state. I now live in in NW PA. near Tidioute. I'm surrounded by more than 2,000 acs. of woods. I've searched everywhere and haven't found one yet! There is one small patch the neighbor knows of. When I had my camp in Potter County there were so many leeks you didn't know where to dig first, whole mountainsides were covered with them!

Re: Young Ramps

The wife and I dug some a few weeks ago in Warren county. You had to rake away the leaves to find them. There were no leaves on them yet. They were nice and hot, made great dip.

Re: Young Ramps

I've got them growing all around my camp. I just had my first bowl of home made leek and potato soup this past weekend. I love this time of year. Bell's meat market in Kane makes a killer leek sausage with locally grown ramps.

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