Ramps are essentially wild leeks - they go in and out of season very quickly this time of year, so grab them if you see them!

Ramps grow wild in the woods and are one of the early spring plants to push above ground. they have a close European relative, that according to farmers' stories, hungry bears seek out for their first post-hibernation meal.

Ramps are a spring tonic, make divine pesto and soup. find them in farmers markets--or in the woods. But don't confuse them with lilies of the valley, which they resemble.
