Wow, beautiful garden you have there....

On the garlic, do you eat/and or preserve the scapes/stalks?  I've read that they are a really special treat.  I just planted garlic for the first time about 3 weeks ago and I am looking forward to trying them next Spring/Summer.  I planted 6 different heirloom varieties, so hopefully at least some of them will turn out.

rhinoliner, evening... I have eaten them while cutting them off to force the garlic to grow larger.... sometimes snap them off while on a stroll to check stuff... The guy down the road has "high end" restaurants buying his... to answer your question.. No.. not as a regular thing....

They might be good dipped in tempura and deep fried.... or stuffed in a fatty for color and flavor... maybe even in an ABT I would try it... just my opinion...

Glad to hear you are growing the heirloom varieties... It does take about 3-5 years for them to get "totally" acclimated to your climate and soil so don't be discouraged for the first few years.... Hang in there.... It IS worth it.... Glad you stopped in... Dave
