This first thing I did this morning was go out to the garden and cut all my garlic scapes. Last year a gardening friend told me he was not going to grow garlic as he could buy organic garlic that was better than what he could grow. I listened but realized that I don't just grow my garlic for the bulb but for these lovely lines. I cannot give up on the pulse of their looping nature.
