Yesterday I loaded my bicycle with fresh water, a bag and a knife and went out to dig wild onions, leeks or ramps from my favorite spot in the woods near our home. One hour later I returned with a large supply of the nicest, sweetest smelling ramps. I froze some, shared others and made a ramp, wild mushroom stew with the rest. Please be cautious when harvesting as too many might collapse the system. But enjoy, these foods are resilient and our sharing them a bit may make us more likely to keep the woods as woods and not next years condo. Harvesting is here and this is one thing that can be done in the cold weather. Best, Leigh
