Garlic Scapes

by Jo Reimer
Garlic Scapes
I was compelled to buy these curly garlic tops, called scapes, at Farmers Market a week ago. So beautiful and strange! I put them in a water glass on the kitchen counter and they've continued to grow. I'm told that they're great in recipes but I can't bear to cut them, and before they straighten I must sit down and draw each one. Read about them here where there's a recipe for Garlic Hazelnut Pesto.

I've decided to be easier on myself and not obsess over posting on my blog this summer. I'll try for once a week but if I don't accomplish even that know that I'm more than okay and probably enjoying a quiet summer in my back yard.

  2. Your garlic scapes are SO cool, I can see why you don't want to cut them! Enjoy your time in the yard.

    I loved looking at your artwork, Jo! I ended up listening to Luis Palau last night at the conference center. He was great!
    Take Care,

    1. It's good to hear from you, Merri. I know you must be having a great time settling into your new home in Seattle. What a wonderful city to live in and to explore, and it's great for your family that you're nearer. Keep in touch.
