Well I went out and harvested the few early birds.  It was hard to walk in the area without stepping on node's about to push up fiddleheads. Next week I imagine I will have more than I know what to do with. For now  I found enough to have with dinner.

 Thank you all for confirming I had edible fiddleheads.

They look delicious Brad_S   It will be sometime around mothers day before we have fresh ones here.  There is still a considerable amount of snow in the woods here but it's fading fast.

 Why have I never found out about these before? I'll have to do some reading on the fiddleheads, I know where a big patch of ferns grow but I'm not sure if they're the edible type. I've seen some similar to those while morel hunting. After this flooding settles down, I had better go investigate. :o

So far I have only seen cinnamon fern starting up.
