I finally picked the garlic scapes yesterday. They were almost as tall as me. You can just see the seed pod just behind the kids' heads. I think I may have left them a bit too long as they were a bit woody. Nevertheless I made pesto with them and it smells deliciously garlicy. Now I just have to figure out ways of using it. It's in the freezer at the moment.
Here are the scapes ready for the food processor.
After the first processing followed by the addition of grated parmesan and olive oil.
