Aforementioned Ramps. 10$ a lb is about average in the city, as the only way to get them is people foraging them in the wild.

Pics 2 and 3 are ramps I planted from bulbs in an undisclosed location 2 years ago. They actually took, so we are waiting another 3-5 to start harvesting any, as they spread naturally and taking any now will deplete the crop way too much.

Holy crap!  I can buy steak(not the good stuff) for less than $10 a pound lol.  So can you freeze them or are they only good for that 1 month a year they are in season?

You can absolutely freeze them. We made a compound butter with ramps and froze the whole thing for use as needed. Also did a ramp infused salt, and best of all was Cheddar ramp biscuits :love:

So, ramps was the best name they could come up with?

Dialectical variant from a much older name...
