Our 2021 garden: first scapes

My daughter had noticed that some of the garlic scapes looked ready to harvest, so when I did my rounds this morning, I came prepared to grab them!

Our very first garlic scapes!

We’ve never had scapes before, and are really looking forward to trying them. Only 4 were ready to harvest this morning, but there are plenty more that we’ll be harvesting soon. So far, only one variety of garlic has scapes. A second variety is just starting to show the tips of them, while the third variety doesn’t have anything, yet. Between the three, we should have quite the extended season of them!

Now we have to figure out what to do with just 4 scapes. 😀

I also picked our first beet greens, lettuces and green onions this morning, along with more spinach. They’ve been around for a while; I just wanted to wait until the plants were robust enough before I went in among them.

Have you ever had scapes before? If so, what’s your favorite way to enjoy them?
