June 3rd

This is my 250th post.... Who knew I had this much to say! LOL!

Last night I was out in the garden picking more strawberries. By the way I will be freezing them for now... Everyone is getting tired of them. Good thing I don't have acres of them.... Oh well! But anyways, as I was looking around at everything I noticed something on my garlic..... I vaguely remember Skippy's Mom talking about Garlic Scapes so into the house I come to look up Garlic Scapes. Sure enough that is what I have. You see they only grow on hard neck garlic. And that is what I planted last year.... Some purple hard neck type of garlic that I got at one of the farmers markets.

Skippy's Vegetable Garden - Garlic- Thanks for posting or I might have never know what I treasure I had.
eHow on Garlic Scapes
2SistersGarlic has some great recipe ideas
GarlicFarm has everything you wanted to know about Garlic but were afraid to ask

I have a lot of running around to do tonight. Picky monster has a 7th grade sendoff from 5-7. Band monster has practice from 6-9 and I have a meeting at 7, which I will have to take Picky with me. While all of this is going on Mouthy monster and Grim will be holding down the fort. I think I need a nap and the day has just begun... LOL!

I have an opportunity to meet Mary Jane Butters next week at a Luncheon. I can wait I will be able to meet other Farmgirls from around the state as well. The last get together was right after Grims motorcycle accident and I just couldn't leave him for the day. It is going to be a ton of fun... Now what to wear?!? LOL!

Gotta Run,
