This week my nephew and I share a fun summer surprise from a recent woodland walk. Learn all about wild leek, also known as wild ramps, a beautiful wildflower whose leaves carpet the forest floor in spring and whose flowers brighten the deep forest shadows in summer. Plus, it's good to eat and good for you! As promised, here are a couple of links to yummy wild leek recipes:
Special thanks to Michelle Martin for hunting up some spring leaf photos for me! Apparently they grow "rampant" in Minnesota. That's right, we botanist have a strange sense of humor!!!
