It’s the end of June, which means my birthday will be soon! And our biweekly CSA box gave us a bundle of garlic scapes, which reminded me to go check my own small bed of garlic. We had a new baby this spring, and the garden has been neglected in favour of laundry and newborn cuddles.
But there they were, a couple dozen green spirals. I picked them and made a batch of fleurs d’ail salees. It’s a nice annual ritual, among all the changes that life brings.
