I dug my garlic a couple of weeks ago and hung it out to dry. Noticed these long stalks and what look like buds coming from it.
The garlic has formed a scape which will produce bulbils which can be planted to grow more garlic or eaten.

I have discovered that lots of folks cut those scapes when they appear & eat them! Guess they are really good in stir frys. They are milder than the bulb but stronger than an onion.
Some even chop them small & add them to salads.

As usual thanks a million. I'll have to send some home to my son who likes to experiment with cooking.
