I had some scrambled eggs and ramps today. Ramps are without a doubt the favorite and most anticipated harbinger of spring in the High Virginia's. I have never been one to harvest more than needed of anything and often come up short at the end. Especially nowadays. But, it seems that I hit the ramp harvest just right. I have two more packs in the freezer. It will be a month or so before these spring greens will be available in the Pocahontas mountains; where they are sweeter than anywhere else. But you can bet that when the snow recedes, the green will be there and so will I.
