I know this is probably not an ideal topic for this forum, but have ramps started popping up yet? If so, are there any old timers out there who can offer some advice as to where the best places are to find them? I've heard several different places where you're more likely to find them, such as on the west side of a mountain,etc..., but I don't know for certain where one's most likely to find these little gems. Any info would be much appreciated! Morrels, or as the old timers call them around here,(Mulligans, Molly Moochers, etc...); they won't start popping up till April, right? Any old timers with info about the best places one can find these highly sought after mushrooms would be highly appreciated too. I would appreciate it greatly if only those who know for certain the answers to these questions respond. No more old wive's tales please! Thanks so much, and make it a great day for yourselves!~~~~~~~

Growing on the West side of a mountain sounds like an old wives tale. XD XD XD

I don't really know about 'old wives tales" but I do know ramps will grow about anywhere --Several years ago I picked ramps and just threw some on my property-it was on a mountain-don't know rather it was north --south--east --west---lol--but over the years ramps have grown there---every year they keep spreading and get thicker and thicker.

Can you freeze Ramps and/or dehydrate them?

We freeze ramps every year--most don't last long but last week I fixed some from last year--they had lost most their taste---so I suppose we should have used them sooner.

Check with Thomas Key. He has an organic farm up around Barger Springs. He was going to try growing some last year.

Does anyone know whether the ramps have started popping up in the Rupert, Rainelle area yet? I'd really like to go and dig up a few as soon as possible. Please let me know when the ramps start popping up in those areas!
