The scapes have been cut...

 ...and enjoyed! And we seem to be on schedule for harvesting garlic next weekend.  Garlic scapes are the flower bud of the garlic plant. I removed the buds several weeks ago to encourage the bulbs to thicken up. Scapes make a fabulous addition to a flower arrangement with their elegant twirls, and they are absolutely delicious to eat!
