I'd like the recipe, too. I've had chard in quiche before (my mom made it) but not a frittata. Sounds good.

All just started sprouting.
Onions in and taking root. Also placed sets about 2 weeks ago, setting roots and probably an inch or two bigger than when I planted.
Garlic about 8 inches, looking healthy
Got tomatoes and peppers, started from seeds, inside. Probably another 3 or 4 weeks before they make their way outside.

I just noticed the ' Semi - Wild' ramps emerging from the ground. Ill see how many Ive got then decide how many to pick.

A few years back, I ordered Ramps online. I had never had them before, and was curious. When I got them, the plants were so healthy looking with roots attached . And it was quite a big bundle. I ate half of them, and the others I decided to plant outside in a wooded area of my yard. I figured I had nothing to lose, other than a few bucks. Luckily they took. And now I get at least 50 + a year. Slowly they are spreading.
I had pickled ramps as part of an appetizer plate at a Chef's Table dinner a couple of years ago. They were really good. I could send you the recipe if you're interested.

I love 'fiddleheads' too! Unfortunately arthritis doesn't - but I indulge at least once and just suffer.

I am trying to get Management to have the maintenance folks build me a raised farming bed so I can do some gardening. I may have to call HUD. They are the main ones involved with resident requests and problem. We have 20 plots and only the maintenance people plant in it. I just want one or two of those plots so I can garden from my wheelchair.
