Sue are you pullin the whole plant or cutting the leaves in the woods?.....My concern with ramp harvest is the disturbed soil is prime conditions for exotic invasive plants to move in...like garlic mustard and honeysuckle.... in Vermont I would think Burning bush...We have ramps all over the place but I leave em be to try and help control the exotic invasive plants...but snipping off the leaves would work....

Ours grow in an area that has a creek and lots of trees. And lots of rocks, and grow with the roots under tree roots. Very hard to dig out the roots. Makes great soups, stirfries, other nice dishes and etc.  They are only around for about a month. I have been told that ramps have a purplish color where the wild leeks are white. I don't know if this is true, I have both growing together.  I freeze a lot for winter soups. Everything on them is good to eat, I don't eat the roots, though. SueVermont

Can anyone out there tell me how I should present ramps at the farmers’ market and what I should charge for them?  I few years ago an old guy at our market was putting them in a little bunch of four or five and selling them for a dollar.  That seems a little expensive in a way but I would not charge less than that amount.  Sounds cheap to me; but they're hard to come by around here if you can find them at all. I don't have any on the place, and have never tried to establish them. The only price I can find right now that has any on my list of pricing sites is Park Slope in New York City, and they're getting 12.37 a pound. http://foodcoop.com/go.php?id=90   -- Rivka; Finger Lakes NY, Zone 6A now I thinkFresh-market organic produce, small scale
