Having Your Ramps And Eating Them Too

Glen's passion for ramps is so great that you can almost smell the ramps as you read his writing! Glen spent a lifetime observing ramps in their natural environment and learning how best to grow them. How fortunate we are that he then chose to share his vast knowledge in a book that is not only incredibly informative but is also an absolute joy to read. With humor and a delightful West Virginia accent, Glen tells you all about the plant and its history and life cycle; where to find it; how to grow, harvest, and ship; how to cook and eat it; and how to help maintain it for many generations to come. This book should be on the shelf of anyone interested in ramps, because there is something in it for everyone, from the botanist to the farmer to the cook. As someone who has benefited greatly from Glen's knowlege, I am thrilled that he has documented it for all. Thank you Glen!

If you want to grow ramps or you just want to eat them, you need to have this book in your library. In my opinion, Glen Facemire knows more about ramps than anyone else. He has been fascinated with the plant his whole life, sowed seeds all around his region during his adult life, and started a ramp business upon retirement. When I initiated my research on how to cultivate ramps in North Carolina, Glen graciously invited my associate and me to spend the day with him. I learned more about ramps in one day with Glen than I did in three months reading scientific articles and talking with botanists and ecologists. I am so pleased that Glen chose to share his knowledge in a book so everyone, now and in the future, can learn from his experiences and keen observations. In this little book, Glen tells us how the plant grows, how to grow it ourselves, and how to prepare it for some delicious eating. And probably my favorite part is that his personality, humor, West Virginia accent, and regional colloquialisms come through making for an entertaining read. I highly recommend this book.

Very Good educational book on ramps. All the how to's that you need to know on planting, growing, caring and, of course, eating!

Takes a long time to get it said however, where else would you find so much info on ramps.
