The Ramps are up...
Wild Leeks '09
Out in one of my favorite local Hardwood bushes, the old forest floor covers the Leek beds I've harvested from in the past. A walk through there, along side of the nicely flowing creek, last Sunday, produced the first specimens of 2009. The Ramps are Up! :-)
Many localities celebrate with Ramp Festivals this time of year. Is there one in your locality? None here in Ottawa, that I know of anyway, but that doesn't stop me from partaking in my ritual Spring Tonic, of Leek harvesting and fresh live food consumption. :-)
I also find them, from a photographic point of view, quite lovely in their own right. Do You agree?
