This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

garlic scapes!

scapes
I guess I was wrong about my garlic. A couple weeks ago I concluded they weren't going to make scapes. But look! Scapes. Better late than never.

(Boundary Garlic Farm has good garlic growing info.)

Allium sativum

I was at the garden yesterday, and there were still more scapes! I guess some varieties of garlic are later than others.

I must have a very late variety - whatever it is. Next year (actually later this year) I will have to look into varieties that are good for my area.

When did you cut the scapes off?

Cut them off when they get curled all around - like in the picture.
