Went to my usual spot today to check for WL. I was not disappointed.

Harvested a pail full and now ready to make soup.

Worst part of harvesting the leeks is washing and cleaning them when you get home.

Here is my soup recipe. I had enough leeks to quadruple the recipe.

This time, I did not use bacon. I put some oil in the pot and cooked things that way.

A month or so ago I bought 1 of the round fully cooked hams when it was on sale, cut it into quarters and froze them. Today, I thawed out and diced 2 quarters and added them to the soup after I added the cream and blended everything. I didn't use heavy cream, I used 10% cereal cream instead.

As you can see I have used the recipe a few times.

I will put it in containers and freeze.

Wow, nice haul of leaks. Love leak soup.

I use to pick wild asparagus when I was turkey hunting near Sarnia.
I miss both.

Ralph, when you take the bulb out with the green, do they come back the next year?

I don't think they do, but I'm careful to harvest selectively and leave about half the plants there to let them add more bulbs to the group. I was out today and found a very large area of them, the bulbs have almost doubled in size from a few weeks ago. 2 plastic grocery bags full and I could barely see the difference in what I took. Made 2 big and one medium jar of pickled ramps, should be ready in 3 weeks.

I'm with Fisherman, I don't think they do. I do the same as he does, I only take a small number of plants from any group.
