Wild ramps or leeks

Anyone know their preferred habitat? When to hunt for them? Is is the same time as morels?

Hunt for them? Where ... on your property? I imagine there are internet articles on harvest ramps.

Order some, or plant seeds and grow your own.

Here is a link to where you can order ramps and ramp seeds:

Beckly West VA. has a ramp festival every year. I do know you cook them out side. and from what I have seen a good time is had by all. Most I have seen are wild and thrive well once established. good luck

I've just discovered that I have wild leeks growing on my property. I've been here eight years and just now learned what it was. (I posted on "name that plant".)The confusing part of it is that by the time the flower scapes show up, the leaves are gone, so I never put the two together as one plant. It's interesting to know that people go "hunting" for them, and I have them for free. But I've never tried one...not sure I want to.
