|Ramp with dew|
|John, Turley, and ramps|
Did I mention we also love morels? These little mushrooms are not as easy to spot as the ramp and grow in abundance right here in Bath Co. Friends and locals tell tales of scooping up pounds of these delicious mushrooms, but don't think they will share their morel spot; that secret is taken to the grave. I often wonder, because I've yet to find one, if folks who point me in the "right" direction, are really just sending me further away from their morel spot. Nah, now why would they do that :)? Luckily we just have to wait patiently for someone to pop by the back door with bags full of morels for sale to finally enjoy them. If you can find them, and I hope you have more luck than I, enjoy them, because they are here for a such short time in spring, and although you can buy them dehydrated nothing compares to a freshly picked morel.
Whatever it is you love about spring, and I could go on and on, we hope that you will someday make a trip to experience spring in Bath Co.
