    I love garlic. Someday I will grow some. It's always a thought to do, never get there. That's some lovely production. Seems cutting scapes does work..and they are edible. Win, win! :)

    I haven't cut the scapes these last few years as I wanted to plant the bulbules when they grew. Next year I'll be cutting scapes and will see how that all goes as far as bulb size. Good demonstration, CG!
