Allium Tricoccum

Allium tricoccum. That's one of them Latin names that plant nerds use when they talk to other plant nerds. I had to look it up. Ramps. That's all they are and from what I can tell, ramps don't speak Latin.

Grandma wouldn't have ramps in her house. Pop and I would have to go fishing and camping. That was my first experience with ramps.

This is the last of this year's ramps. These are going to the freezer, if they last that long. I got these from a roadside vendor here in Burnsville. They didn't leave anything in the ground to grow next year. That's a shame.


Latin names for plants?

To have someone to talk to,

Plant nerds need plant nerds.

Peace, Y'all!
