Can you name this vegetable?


This is a delicacy.





This is worth waiting a year to eat.




It is a flower stalk of garlic. It is called a scape. And it is fantastic in omelets and frittata. It tastes like garlic asparagus.




I am drooling.


We are eating them Saturday morning with the Lund and Jensen families. I will go out and harvest them Friday. By cutting off the flower stalk, I force the plant to make a bigger clove of garlic.


mmmmmmm.


My dear husband has said it for years and really, really hopes I brush my teeth before I kiss him.



My favorite vegetable is garlic.
