Photo of ramps taken at Ramp Up Peninsula, the city's inaugural festival honoring the ramp, the wild leek and the ramson, at the Brandywine Country Club on Saturday in Peninsula, Ohio. The ramp is a wild herb found throughout northeastern United States which flourishes in leafy mulch in hardwood forests. Their strong garlic and onion flavor is rich, earthy, lingering and not like anything else. (Ed Suba Jr./Akron Beacon Journal)
