Are your garlic scapes escaping?

Do you have garlic scapes just begging to be made into pesto?  Hurry before it’s too late!

I think of this time in the garden as “forage season” because it’s too early for the big crops like tomatoes and cucumbers and peppers.  Instead, it’s time for gleaning radish greens, garlic scapes, young lambsquarter, and a bit of sorrel for a salad.
