Just checked my secret spot yesterday and the wild leeks/ramps are up an inch or so. I'll give them a few days to get taller before digging them but in some areas they may be ready.

If you dig, please practice good leek etiquette: only take a few leeks from any area and leave lots behind. They take ages to spread and greedy digging can completely destroy a leek patch which may never recover. If you buy them at the market, ask the vendor where they came from. Not that it will prevent leek abuse entirely, but it's important to remind people to be responsible when foraging.
