garlic scapes from Keith Stewart

Starting last year, we decided to offer Keith Stewart’s organic garlic scapes as a separate share. Scapes are the flower bud of a hardneck garlic plant. Farmers cut scapes in June—before the flowers have a chance to bloom—to encourage the bulbs to grow bigger. If you love scapes, this is the share for you! Scapes are milder than green garlic. They are great in pesto or a stir fry or in any dish where you want a mild garlic flavor. You can order as many as you like. Pickup will be on 6/25.
