I got a bagful of dozens and dozens of ramps this week and have been keeping them moist and cool. Today’s the day–I’m planting ramps. (Find out more about ramps–how to find them, and how to grow your own–here.) Ramps are easy to grow–I was successful with them at Stringtown Rising. You can cut off the root ends and plant them, leaving the stinky rest for your culinary endeavors. It takes a few years for them to grow and spread before you can harvest. I’d been growing them at the old farm for several years, but I’ll have to start over here. According to the previous owners, there weren’t any ramps growing on this farm. I’ll change that today!
Ross is also helping me dig holes–we’re planting five sugar maples today, too.
