The best outdoor bargain in East Tennessee!


Spring is upon us here in East Tennessee. What happened to winter?  I blinked and missed it. I wonder it it is too late to harvest ramps?

 This link is to the Friends Of Roan Mountain.

Their Spring Naturalist Rally is May 2 – 3 – 4, Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday.  (No, it is NOT a clothing optional kind of thing.)
