    I love Bluegrass. I'd love to go to one of those festivals. I laughed when the contest winner got a bottle of Scope as his prize. Did you notice how they fried the bulb end first without getting the leaves in the oil? Good tip. Thanks for the link. Had a great time watching it. My mouth was watering.

    I went on a short 3 mile hike today and discovered a huge patch of ramps maybe 300 feet by 150 feet. If you watched the video on Ramp festivals you saw some very huge ramp patches. What I saw rivals some of them. I didn't have my camera, so I am kicking myself. I also didn't have anything to harvest them. I plan to go back next week and dig up some for a treat. This patch is one I have never seen before. I did see a patch maybe two years ago that is dwarf compared to what I just found. I am amazed. Some of the ramps are growing in between stones and will not be able to be harvested. The patch is about 20 minutes into the hike from a parking site.

    I am very glad I brought a hiking stick with me today because the trail crossed a stream a few times and the rocks you cross on were under about 2" of water. We just had a lot of rain and the stream is really running high. I am also glad I had on waterproof hiking boots. Kept my feet dry as I had to place them in the water.

    2015 update:

    Original bulb plantings thriving.
    Inspected planting site last weekend and found 40 or so already waking up.

    In addition, last fall I sowed over 1k seed in another site that I had picked out on the edge of my property.
    Ramp seed are famous for low germination and requiring both a cold and warm period to germinate.
    I wasn't sure I would find any signs of life.

    I did find a few sprouts though

    jwalker, dig some and have ya a big mess hehehehehe

    Where I'm at people are unfamiliar with them, just not something you see here.
    I'm just outside their historical habitat, but so far they seem happy.

    I have yet to observe one of mine in bloom though. I need to put survey markers up but I'm a little afraid that will attract attention to them.
    I'm assume they probably are, and if they are setting seed, then I think they'll be ok long term.

    Also looked for my two fiddlehead ferns, but didn't see them (could have been walking all around them).

    I not think the flowers last long you'll see a brown spike with 3 or 4 little balls at the end
