    Once this weather warms up a bit in April I'm going to start scouting for new spots. I've been at the game for 5 years now and I've already seem some dwindling and empty spots. Gotta keep moving!

    can't wait to get out, perhaps this bad ( needs replacement) hip will give me a break, at least it will make me slowdown and look harder!

    You to LISSE. I have been hiking around alot, cant let OldElm get the jump on me. Could be a fairly early season, but you know how that goes. Good luck to everyone and looking forward to a great season.

    I'm still kickin! So far anyway... I needed to get back on here and read something positive for a change. So thank you all for that! Been getting out with my daughter picking up trash in the local parks for exercise and to teach her the ways of the world. March was a good month for sure. Snow is gone for a good portion of the state, and rain is already here. So hopefully we ease into the spring and find our fortunes bountiful!
    On a more serious note: Please be safe and take precautions with this virus. Its definitely no joke. My wife is an RN in the ICU Isolation unit for Coronavirus. She's already been exposed and is currently at home in quarantine sick with the virus, and I can tell you its no fun. The kids and I are trying to keep clean, but it feels like we're living inside a petri dish... So anyway, be safe, stay clean, and there's no better time to go for a walk and find some new potential spots! While most of the population is at home being bored and going crazy, we are the few that will be getting excited for whats to come in the next couple months!!

    Thanks for sharing, that brings this whole virus close to home & the need for diligence, cooperation & faith.
    You all are in my prayers.
    This will be a good spring, found my first Ramp sprouts today, very exciting this early.
    God bless.

    That’s totally amazing this early, we found some sprouter’s today too, & there is nothing like that first batch of fried Ramps - can’t wait.

    I dont know of any online resorce other than this site. If you decide to pick them though do it sparingly because it takes 3 to 5 years for them to mature to a point were they can reproduce. Unless there are tons of them around i would say pick 1 in 10 that you see
