I spent the morning in my neighbor's field, helping him harvest garlic scapes. We did an episode last year about grilling them [search thru the 'guide' in the video player or watch on iTunes ]
So I came home with a huge sack of them, thinking that I could somehow pickle them. I ran across several ideas on the web, making scape pesto is what many people do, and I liked how Vanessa at What Geeks Eat prepares them.
[It ends up Vanessa and her husband and I attended the same university, Southern Illinois University, all at the same time. interesting.]
So, though Henry & Mij are lounging in the yard after attacking each other all morning, I'm going to go to the store and see about pickling some of these, and making pesto.

Hey. I just cut all my garlic scapes off and I think they are past their prime time as they have mostly straightened from the beautiful curl they had a couple of weeks ago. Are they still ok to use or will they be tough?
