It’s official. Fall has arrived in dramatic fashion. The leaves are quickly changing into vibrant colors of yellow, orange, and red. High School football games are in full swing and it’s homecoming for a lot of them. Homecoming parades, games, and dances have likely consumed the time from a lot of families this weekend.
While I was in the deer blind with my son this morning (today is the first day of bowhunting season here in WV) we watched thousands of leaves fall off the branches and hit the ground in seemingly endless supply. We didn’t get a deer this morning, but it was nice to be out in the quiet calm of the woods for an extended time.
Over the past couple of days, we restocked our ramp bulb levels and have a large quantity to sell once again. So if you missed out on the last batch, make sure you get some now. These bulbs are fat and gorgeous, perfect for making some caramelized ramp bulbs, pickled ramps bulbs, or just about any other dish you want to make with them. Of course they can just as easily be planted right now so you will have your own ramp greens ready to harvest in the spring.
As more and more leaves come off the trees, the bulbs get harder to find so there is no guarantee that I will have more at a later date. Although I certainly hope that I do.
The cold snap this week slowed the growth of the ramps down a little bit, so we have another week of bulbs. If you haven’t ordered yet, you still have time. You would primarily use these ramp bulbs for planting. I hope it warms up a bit this week so they can finally get some green tops on them!
By now I hope several of you that have bought bulbs have had time to get them in the ground. The second round of orders should be arriving to everyone tomorrow or Wednesday. (Make sure you water them heavily after planting!)
The next orders of ramp bulbs will be shipping out on Monday 3-23-2015 and Tuesday 3-24-2015. If you want to plant some bulbs, please get your orders in before then. Some of the bulbs have started poking their heads above the ground, so I expect that in two weeks you will be ordering what you have been waiting on for so long….
This is an older picture, but we will be there in a couple of weeks. I know I can’t wait to get some of these in my belly along with some fried potatoes and bacon. Delicious!
For now though, they’re still just bulbs. If you are interested in the bulbs, the order page with qty and pricing information is located here: Ramp Bulbs for sale.
