things i miss about chicago and midwest.

1. Not depressing winters.

2. ramps the harbingers of spring.

I really don’ t care to have more depressing winters, but can i bring ramps to me? Are they farm able? I know they are still cultivated, but can they dig cultuvation, even if it is in Oregon?

What the heck is a ramp? I was born here & have lived in Oregon all my life and have never heard of one???

A ramp is a wild onion type plant. They are delicious, and celebrated every spring in the MidWest (I personally think Chicago, which in the Indian language where the name comes from means “stinky onion” is named after them).
