TJ - ramps are wild leeks.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!
Well I was curious what they were too. Leeks huh!!, Gosh dernit, I was going to buy some seeds and plant them for future tractor ramps.
Then came Bronson
The taste (and smell) is a cross between strong onions and very strong garlic. You don't want to be going to the movies with your favorite date after a ramp dinner.

I thought it had to do with tractor ramps until I started reading the post. I guess they don't grow on the west side of the big river.
Thanks for the link Donny I guess I learned something today.

Me too. I was surprised the topic wasn't on the tractor board!
We have something my grandmother always called wild onion- roughly, you eat the top of the plant like green onion or chives. Also very strong, but tastes like garlic scapes (the garlic green sprout).
Spring eating here is cowslips (leafy green plant with yellow flowers that grows in wet areas) and fiddleheads (unfurled sprout of an oyester fern).
I dug a bunch of ramps yesterday. Ramps appear to propagate from the bulb. To my uneducated eye. It would appear that you need to divide the ramps (dig them up and replant the main bulb and the smaller bulbs that grow adjacent to the main bulb.)
I have an excuse. CRS.
