I grew the broccoli rabe last year and it did great. Having never grown it before, I didn't know that it was slightly bitter. So, my recommendation is to par boil it first, then pour out the water and boil again. That takes the bitterness out. Maybe I waited too long to pick it. What do you do, or how do you cook the garlic scapes? That's a new one to me. I've always let them make heads.
will you trade for vintage fabric? he he i have to come visit... i know i will be in heaven xx
Wow, so nice and green, you're such a good gardener! My own garden looks lush and green as well, but i have to confess, i didn't get around to plant things in the vegetable patch we digged. Your blog is lovely - will visit more often :)
Wow, Heather, the images are something!!! Fresh, if I can say that! You have done a great job in your garden and I feel like showing up for a salad any time...ops, forgot it's a long way from here!!! Brazilian kisses, Bela.
I have never grown garlic scapes...they do look beautiful.Your garden is bountiful, mine is much slower...we need more sunshine.It's fun growing veggies and harvesting is the best!
I love gardening and those garden pictures are lovely! wish I could sign up for a gift bag but we are miles away. xo
Well darn. I wish I was a neighbor and in line to get one of your gift sacks!The garlic scapes are truly a work of art. No wonder you wanted to spend so much time photographing them.
I am also an avid gardener and have never seen garlic scapes. I have harvested green garlic to saute like an onion but yours look entirely different. So pretty too! Thanks Heather for the inspiration and a new veggie to try....if I can find it.~kelley
Every thing looks yummy! Don't you just love fresh food from the garden? Carla
Gift bag... how about a crate.. man if you could ship it I'd give you my card # in a heartbeat!!!By the way I lived on the fringe of the Amish/ Menonite farms in Maryland & they kept the hunters away with dried blood. Works like a charm. In my fertile soil Midwest days it never failed to keep my crops bunny/squirrel free. My neighbor laughed at me first season after I moved in but soon...was begging for my source.Enjoy all your marvelous veggies!!!
your garden is incredible!!! I love garlic scapes!
....Beautiful pictures of yummy food!.
I love your world. xoxo
yes...what do you do with garlic scapes?
What a lovely garden! Its so nice to see someone else is organic as well. We love eating fresh from our garden. There is nothing like it! Wonderful blog!! Susan :)
Hello all - garlic scapes are the tall flower that grows up the middle of a planted garlic clove. I harvest them and they taste just like garlic. They can be used in any dish that you would use garlic in. They are much milder in taste - unless you bite one raw - then yowsa, very stong.
those garlic scapes were delicious! thanks for sharing some H. Latitude thanks you.
I had never heard of a garlic scape until I read this. The same day I went to a friends for lunch and she had just recieved her box of farm goodies (part of a country to city initiative) and there on the top were garlic scapes. I did bite one, and you are right...they have a punch. An they are gorgeous to look at.
Hi,Just found your blog through Jane from Small but Charming. It looks great! Love your garden! I have a part vegetable, part flower garden as well, but not as pretty as yours. Did not know you could eat the garlic scapes as well. Where do you use them for/how do you prepare them?Lieve groet, Madelief
What a gorgeous picture tour of your garden!
Ahhh your garden is looking quite luscious...how fun to go out and pick a little here, and a little there...We are so consumed with the creek and pond, that I knew I wouldn't have time this year ...thankful for the amazing farmers market every Saturday...have a great week...Rosie
visiting your blog always makes me breathe a little deeper and that's a good thing...hope to have a visit soon.
those radishes look so good!!! i love them. i also want to try garlic scapes this year (eating them not growing them, not ready for the garden yet..)
