The stinky springtime treasure of Appalachia is popping up on my hillside! I planted them three years ago. Depressing that it had to snow right after the ramps came up, but it won’t hurt ’em. They’re hardy Appalachian ramps. They’re survivors. I’m still not harvesting any. I’m waiting for them to spread. Maybe in a few more years….. I’ve got them planted in a number of spots on the hillside behind our house. I check on them every spring just to say hello.
See how to find and grow your own ramps here. See my “garden” of ramps here, and I have a few recipes with ramps here.
