We will harvest another batch of WV Ramps this weekend during our weekly dig and we will be shipping them out on 4/21.
We expect to keep harvesting for a few more weeks. The mild weather coming in (it’s actually supposed to snow tomorrow!) should slow the growth down a little bit and allow us some extra harvest time. Last year was one of the shortest harvest seasons we have had in a while and I am hoping we more than make up for that this year. We are on track so far. We are currently at three weeks into the season and it looks like it should definitely be lasting for another two or three weeks at least. Wouldn’t that be nice? To have a full month or two of all the ramps you can eat? Sounds like a good time to me!
Here is the Wild Ramps Order Form for those of you who still have not ordered, or are ready to order your second or your third batch.
In the meantime I have a WV Ramps question for you guys.
What do you call ramps in your area? Here is a list of what I have heard them called:
- Wild Ramps
- Ramp Vegetable
- Wild Scallions
- Vegetable Ramps
- Mountain Leeks
- Wild Onions
- WV Ramps
- West Virginia Ramps
….and I could continue with more.
So, what is the most common name for ramps in your area?
