I ground up 4lbs of Garlic scapes today and stopped after I made 3 quarts of pesto. I have 4.5lbs left that I sold to a local farm market today after they called and asked what I had available, got a good price too $6.50 a lb. Now tomorrow I have another 2-3#s to cut.
Rita, I can only say that our onions have not done well this year either. I am sure this is the worst onion crop we have ever had. We harvest most years 7-8 thousand pounds. This year only 2 thousand. Same amount of onions planted, they are just really small. And nobody wants to buy them. Guess we will be eating lots of onion. But they are tasty. CF
God Bless America, Don't think so? Maybe you should Leave.
And take Obama with you !!
NICE !!! My garlic really hasn't done a thing .. I think I need to reel in someone and or take my soil for analysis .. Onions and garlic are not doing well in my dirt
Rita: As far as the garlic goes they need a PH between 6.0-7.0 they are not big feeders so you don't have to amend the soil with high NPK fertilizer. Onions on the other hand are big feeders so the soil will need a higher NPK readind.

The onions I planted last fall are not growing much either. I planted the Texas 1015Y Grano's that are supposed to get about softball size. I am lucky if any are as big as a golf ball. I lost over half with the 10 inches of snow we had this past winter. If we ever get any rain again, the garden should start doing better and my water bill will go down.
