Early garden harvests
Green beans, baby carrots, garlic scapes. lettuce, radishes and radish flowers.
Garlic scapes are used in pesto and pickled.
Garlic scapes are green stems and unopened flower buds of hard-neck garlic varieties.
Scapes have a mild garlic flavor and a slight sweetness, which makes them a prized addition in the kitchen. You can find them in the early summer at farmers’ markets. If you grow your own garlic, trim the scapes off before their flowers open.
This forces the plant to focus on bulb.
