hopefully next year I can send ya some :-)
I have flower stalks, counted over ten in one small area
Ive got 19 that I can find.
I've been missing for a while. Good to see you had flowers. Hope you see growth soon.
They are already waking up, took a walkabout to the patch this weekend.
I was surprised how long it took for the seeds to mature, it was late fall before they started to drop last year.
The patch is growing in size every year, harvest my first ones last year.

Never heard of ramps before...now I cant wait to try them!! Sounds like a good plant for the upcoming auction av8tor1 (hint, hint)
Idk about "ramps", but my wild crops of green chives this year are amazing! I have half a garden bed full that also contains elephant ear, ice plant, and lillies, plus several carefully-kept wild patches around the property.
Just got back from a conference, and headed out for another on Monday but took a peek at my ramps.
There is not enough to harvest yet, looks as though I have less this year than last... don't know why though.
The size of the patch had been increasing every year and many flowered and set seed last year (possible reason?)
My smaller, secondary location does seem to have more than last year
So, me sowwy but no ramps in the auction, nor the dinner table this year.
What is there is very healthy
My fiddlehead seems smaller too, maybe I'm just remembering them being bigger... LOL
Nice little Trillium, don't know enough about them to ID any further
Harvested some wild onion/chives for ribeye this evening though.

I've never eaten the wild onions/garlic. How does it taste Butch?
Don't know about the effect of flowering on the ramp bulb. I wonder if its like any other Allium where the bulb dies after flowering, since they are biennials. But I've had leeks flower and little bulbils form underground which live on.
Yeah those chives are what I have! Be sure to save the top bulbs for roasts and sautes!
