Ramps on the grill are good.

On an outing to a pioneer cemetery the other day I ate a clover head but I'm not sure what you mean by the "pickle" part.

Our sumac is beginning to flower which will mean bright red berries in the fall. You can make a lemon-y flavored drink from them but I leave them for the birds. In the spring when the robins arrive they seem glad to have them until the ground thaws.

The part I call the pickle, is the ...fruit I guess you'd call it. It's kind of shaped like a pickle, kind of green like a pickle...and kind of tart, like the whole plant is.
