It's ramps time again

A ramp to good times
RICHWOOD -- In this Nicholas County town, the person who doesn't eat ramps is the one who smells a little funny.

Ramps, for the uninitiated, are the pungent wild leek found primarily in the Appalachians. In Richwood, the old folks say the town is home to the state's original ramp dinner.

I wouldn't eat them as a child. I love them as an adult. I haven't had my yearly taste of ramps for a couple of years. I will be unable to attend this year's gathering of ramp lovers. I will be working.
