The last hay field was mowed today. We hope to bale Sunday or Monday.

This afternoon I harvested a large handful of garlic scapes, a few spring onions and more berries. This was very exciting because that meant garlic scape pesto would be on the menu tonight! You can see the reicpe here.

Scapes will keep a long time if put in a jar of water so sometime soon  I will make several batches and freeze it for tossing with pasta or as a spread on crackers and bread.


  1. Have you ever pickled them? I hear they're great that way. I hope to start my garlic bed this fall.

  2. I haven't but that sounds very interesting! I have many so may give it a try. Thanks!
