    Ya, I will try to scout out some spots. I have some spots around me if you want to drive that far, but who cares about a little drive when there is a pot at the end of the rainbow right?. You are welcome anytime my friend.

    Here’s some tasties from this morning, harvested around 40 lbs in 2 hours. Tried uploading a panoramic picture of the field of ramps I found last year but it wouldn’t upload. Morels will be here in south west Wisconsin soon!

    Hey Shroomtrooper, which area is that?
    I just harvested ramps for the first time last year. So I don’t have much of a Refrence for size of them. The ones in the five gallon bucket are a bit deceiving as the ramps with exposed leaves are resting atop other ones at the bottom of the bucket. I’ve read that some people prefer the younger smaller ramps, but we enjoyed these anyways. My sons a vegetarian and he got a real thrill out of eating them during and after harvesting. He’s like, “Dad we didn’t even need to bring a lunch with...we can just live off these!”
    We sold some for .25 each on the road outside our house and the younger kids got a kick outta that. One of em said, “Dad, I think I could do this for a living when I get older.” Kids say the darnedest things sometimes.

    Early in the hunt I'm a lot more energetic and apt to head into the valley. By third day I really have to contemplate effort reward as my body is so sore I can hardly move in the morning. Getting old has its challenges.

    I was on one once, our verdict was life changing and left me in awe of the process. There we're certain aspects of of the case that weren't relevant and could not be shared. Once we made our decision the judge came in and answered questions. If we had ruled differently A lot of us would have lived with the ramifications for the rest of our lives. I remember walking to my car in silence with an almost in an out of body feeling.

    Just a friendly reminder, now is a good time to check your car/truck, toilet paper stash. Sometimes mice get into it over the winter or it gets soggy.
    Don’t want ya cutting up your T shirts anymore!
