Wondering how to store your garlic scapes? Here are a couple methods!

1) R E F R I G E R A T O R

After harvesting your scapes, put them in a plastic bag and fold it over. This will allow some of the condensation to escape but also keep the scapes slightly moist so they don`t dry out. Then, put the bag in the crisper drawer. We`ve been able to get them to store for months like this, but of course, monitor them so they don`t go bad.

2) F R E E Z I N G

Wash and dry the scapes, cut to the size that you want, put them in a bag, and freeze. We vacuum seal ours, but you can also use a normal freezer bag. Also, they can be blanched, but it is not necessary.

... M O R E

Garlic scapes can also be dehydrated, freeze-dried, and pickled. Do some research and find recipes that work for you, and you`ll be able to enjoy the fresh taste of scapes year round! 💚

How much should I water my garlic after picking scapes? 💧

At this point, garlic is very sensitive to overwatering. It can be very easy for the garlic to rot or for the wrappers to break open if there is a sudden onset of too much rain or watering.

We want to keep the soil lightly moist and start letting it dry out a few days before harvest. Some people say to stop watering your garlic after it scapes, but since this is the period when your garlic bulbs out, it does need moisture. We just don`t want TOO much moisture. 🙂✨

Check out this method for preserving your garlic scapes!! Thanks to @meetusinourgarden 🙂

“Freezing herbs in oil is a great way to preserve their flavor since their fragrance and taste come from oils in the plant.

Here I am using olive oil to preserve chopped up garlic scapes and freezing them. You can also do this flat but someone gifted me these fun silicone trays so why not!

Last season I just popped them in a bag and froze them. They were great for cooking and for pesto but they lacked flavor and we were bummed. As it is, I feel like they loose soooo much flavor when you cook them.

We freeze other herbs in oils too so might as well do the scapes the same way.

Did you know you can eat garlic before it`s cured? 🧄

One of the benefits of growing your own garlic is the opportunity to eat it when it`s freshly picked. The flavor of fresh garlic is slightly milder but has a nice juicy flavor.

Of course, we still recommend curing your garlic for full flavor development and long storage. But, this is a cool experience, and it`s perfect if you`re having a hard time being patient to try your garlic! 😉

📣 BIG BULB ALERT 📣

📍Westlake Village, CA

These were grown by Bram, one of our longtime customers. He grows Early Italian Softneck from us each year. 🧄

"I harvested a few bulbs today...and I haven’t harvested the biggest ones yet...! I planted the best of your seed cloves where I have planted every year. But I had too many cloves left over and planted the remainder in raised beds on the other side of my yard. I learned that where I have been planting before didn’t get as much sun as these raised beds. So, apparently, the sun made the difference. I can’t wait to plant again this fall, now that I learned from this experience." - Bram

Thank you for sharing this experience, Bram. This shows that even if you`ve been growing garlic for years, there`s always something new to learn. 🙂

To make garlic scape salt, chop up garlic scapes in a food processor and mix in a large bowl with an equal amount of coarse Himalayan pink salt. Then, dehydrate for 24-36 hours until completely dry.

Put in a seasoning jar with a grinder top and add to all of your favorite dishes for a wonderful spark of mild garlic flavor!

Did you know?

If you didn`t pick your garlic scapes, they are a great indicator of harvest time. If your garlic scapes are at this stage, it`s too late to pick them as they`ve become fibrous hard stems. So, keep them on, and when they point straight to the sky, it`s time to harvest your garlic!!

P.S. It`s okay if you didn`t pick your scapes. We do recommend picking them because it allows the plant to direct more energy into the bulb, but you will still have a beautiful harvest. Next year, try to remember to pick your scapes when they first emerge and curl. 🙂

Question of the Week: When should I harvest my garlic? 🧄

This picture shows a garlic plant that`s about 1 week away from the ideal harvest time. It`s meeting a lot of the criteria that we typically look for. However, in this case, we would give it another week or so to allow the bulb to size up and let a couple more leaves die back. Remember, our goal is to grow big bulbs, so we want to give them a chance to grow!

If you`re growing hardneck garlic, aim to harvest about 3-4 weeks after picking your scapes. If you`d like, you can leave a couple of scapes on (once they point to the sky, you`ll know that harvest time is near.)

If you`re getting really close to harvest time and get multiple days of heavy rain in a row, keep an eye on your garlic. If you see any signs of saturated soil, you may want to harvest so your bulbs don`t rot.

Over many years of growing garlic, you`ll get a feel for when it`s the right time to harvest. However, we`re always here to provide you with information and answer your questions. For more harvesting info, visit the "harvesting garlic" link in our bio!
