Sunday Harvest

We got some good stuff this week.  The beans are both at peak production, and I got to harvest my garlic.  But I think I waited too long.  Harvesting time just stuck up on me, and before I knew it, the leaves were all brown.  The stuff I've read says that you should harvest before all the leaves turn brown.  So I got one bulb that has cracked open, so I'll have to use that one first since it won't keep.  I've also read here and there that the scapes (the tendrils and bulbs at the top) should be cut off, but I've also read that they can be left on, so I left 'em.  The garlic bulbs themselves are pretty small, but bigger than the original cloves I planted, so I'm happy with what I got.

  1. The scapes are delicious if you cut them off. I put mine on a pizza and grilled them up.
