great photo, Mrs. L!

and fwiw, Ramps should be available in the greenmarkets in a week or two.

these are ramps. they are wild leeks. they grow in the woods near wetlands and start popping up in early springtime.

It's sort of a cross between a mild onion, garlic, and scallions. They're delicious, only available for a month or so, and can be fried, sauteed, pickled... pretty much anything.
