    Ahh, the annual zap wild leek thread. That would be awesome.
    We have wild strawberries all over, but they don't even get as big as my little finger fingernail.
    Cook the soup on the Liberty, then post pics. :cheese:

    Thanks Zap. I was doing a bit of reading on the wild leeks (some areas in WI and N. IL also have them). It seems that they are a bit different than the store variety, but can be interchangable.

    The deer have been pounding down the green tops until they get to strong then they leave them alone, plenty enough for everybody.

    While I like leeks and proposed to my wife while she was picking them, all I see in those pictures are BTUs :)

    That's a lot of leeks, it looks cool how the forest floor looks green. It's weird how you have no green leaves on your trees since my woods is almost fully leafed out (80%) at this point.
    Zap, Do you guys get morrel mushrooms growing in your woods?

    I love woods as all the wild plants come up, I must get out and get a picture of wild garlic round here, there are loads about this Spring.

    Wild leek and potato soup sounds tasty.

    Shame you can't smell or taste over the internet........ ;-)

    Solar that is one hill I've never cut on yet but need to get some of the downed wood this year plus clear the trail that runs the base of the hill.

    I do the same Zap although I also take the leaners to open up the canopy for the straight stuff.
