My bogatyr garlic just scaped. I cut them all of
and they are slated for the dinner table.l
Isn't it a little early for scapes?
And about 1/3 of the leaves are now yellow.
Is it time to harvest?
I don't know where you are; my small patch of hardneck garlic hasn't
put up scapes yet, but expect them soon.
Sounds a little (not a lot) soon; I'd wait a bit. Perhaps the plants
were stressed for some reason. I know a fellow who gets his carrots
to bloom for seed by letting not watering- in the Nevada high desert,
where the only water they get is what he supplies- then starting water
to trigger their "Ohmigod, I'm going to die! Better start the next
yum! i pulled some green garlic the other
day and just ate it right there.
it can vary. mine are just starting to get
scapes, so it will be a few weeks to a month yet
here and since i do let the scapes grow and get
bulbules on them i leave them a bit longer than
1/3, but as little as possible since it really
does start to affect the quality of the tunic.
i'll have to stop watering them in a few weeks.
so far this year has been about the opposite
of the past several years. which is ok but
different for sure. a lot of sunshine, things
are growin'... :)
