Thank you to the many restaurateurs and market owners who purchased our tender, delicious and, ultimately, fleeting garlic scapes. Such a pleasure to snip, collect, and see them off - it's been a satisfying two weeks.
Yesterday marked the summer solstice which means that as the days get shorter the garlic will respond by putting all its energy into staying alive. With the scapes gone, the garlic knows that its next best chance at survival is to create as large and robust bulbs as possible.
Looking forward to a great harvest.
