Ramps are a species of wild onion that grows exclusively in Eastern North America. They're best described as a cross between onion and garlic in flavor, but sweeter and milder than both. In texture they're similar to green onions. They're also called wild leeks in some places. They can't be farmed because they take years to mature from seed to flower, so they're exclusively foraged. I'm still lucky in that all I have to do is walk five minutes down to some wooded hills to find thousands of wild ones.
Most people don't know this, but Chicago was actually named after these wild onions. The etymology of Chicago was a Francocization of the injun word Shakawa, which referred to these onions, as they were plentyful in the area where Chicago was founded.
Or not Shakawa, *shikaakwa, according to wikipedia.
Anybody growing anything this year? My sweet corn just silked today.
@Lupus_Dei - NC if you eat a mosquito burger and the mosquitos have been chowing down on AIDS infected jungle people, do you get AIDS??

Brad made this for me yesterday for lunch
I tried to grow beefsteak last year, but unfortunately many of them developed blossom end rot due to drought.
>PINEAPPLE ON PIZZA
pineapple on pizza is the last implicit stand of canadian identity
Pineapple on the right pizza is amazing
Pineapple on pizza is my favourite. I also like it in burgers.
You upside down people are strange
@Archer - you'll eventually catch up to the future. Pineapple is a thing in the future.
Pine...Apple...does it come from a pine tree? My simple southern mind is not equipped to handle such odd concepts.
Technically it's a berry. It's thought to have originally grown wild in and around what is now Paraguay and Southern Brazil.
The Spanish spread them around the world after they settled the area, like they did with corn, tomatoes, peppers and others.
The neo-marxists say we "stole" them from the redskins, but if anything we perfected them through centuries of eugenics. The corn and tomato strains we eat today are nothing like what the redskins grew.
It's an ananas
It's got mars bar, cherryripe, marshmallows, strawberries with whipped cream and vanilla probiotic yogurt.
Cheesy chilli fries
