While the thesaurus defines a rapscallion as a hood, thug or racketeer, I deem rampscallions to be of the highest order of wild onion foragers.  I inducted Richard this Sunday.  The sweet little scallions are easy to spot along the forest floor.  June's soggy ground kept a firm hold so it did take a little more finagling to get them to release.

allium tricoccum is a member of the lily family

they do clean up nicely!
