The Garlic Project: Scapes

We were away for a couple of days in June.  When we came back: AMAZING THINGS IN THE GARDEN!!  The garlic scapes had shown up.  This was so exciting to me.

Here are some pictures I took:

Here is a picture of the scape I harvested:

If you look closely you will see a little snip in the scape just below the blossom where the scape curls on itself.  This is because I had already cut it to use in a recipe before taking the picture!

This was the first time I had grown a garlic scape (well, I was actually growing hardneck garlic as I have noted before, and scapes are part of that process!) and I wanted to see how it tasted....so I made a mashed potato salad..
