    Yum!! Unfortunately we didn't find any here in IL although we only looked in a couple of spots...Did you guys find fiddleheads?

    They were delicious! I fried them in bacon grease though, so mostly they tasted like bacon. :-)

    We have so many ferns on our land, but I recently learned that the type of fiddleheads you can eat aren't found in the woods--they're found along riverbanks and other bodies of water. So, I was content to buy a bag from the guy who sells them by the side of the road.

    Lucky! I love morels. I remember picking some as a kid in the woods of the Eastern Township (Quebec), not too too far from you guys. Remember the spot, they will come back!

    Uh oh, don't tell Dan your secret spot! He loves morels! Did you find any ramps?

    Tambra - Yep, we have ramps!

    Micki - Glad to hear you're enjoying our website! Nope, we haven't discontinued it. We're just behind with posts. :-)
