Sounds lovely, @geogymn
, congrats! Since we've never foraged [or even tried] them before, I'm interested to know how you prepared and what you thought of your first harvest? We still haven't checked our ostrich fern spot, but really hope to this weekend or early next week. Not even sure if it will be too late by then, but keeping fingers crossed!
As far as ramps, we delivered pesto to the land owners and have another harvesting trip planned. Their patches are huge and mature at slightly different times according to whether they're along the flat land or on the hills. The overwhelming majority is still untouched, and after last year's harvest, the ramps have noticeably spread. Feeling happy that our care in harvesting has seemed to pay off for the environment as a whole there.
