Foraging for Ramps

This morning we went to Morningside Park to check out the ramp situation. I say by this time next weekend they will be ready and I will be pickling them. If you want a jar, get your requests in fast ;).

The forest is really starting to explode with new growth. Betty was in heaven and took as many opportunities as possible to sit down, roll in the old leaves and relax. She was too busy rolling around to notice several deer spying on us. Look closely at the forest photo below and see if you can spot one of them. It is rather amazing at how well they blend in with their surroundings at this time of year.

We picked a small bag of ramps which we will add to our salad at dinner tomorrow night, but I can guarantee I will be out there again next weekend!
