Surprise Harvesting!

Having recently moved into this house, a certain amount of time every week is spent trying to get the overgrown and underloved garden into shape.  Amanda has been doing her best to pay attention to where the sunlight falls, when the mystery plants bloom and where the rainwater tends to pool or drain.

Today she made a discovery!  What was originally thought to be daffodils already out of bloom had some curly bulbs stalks sticking out of the center.
Turns out those grassy stalks were garlic bulbs!  Those curly things are the scapes and were harvested today.  She'll be stirfrying them for dinner with some carrots and celery tonight and easily the most excited she's ever been about the mystery plants (even more excited than when the peony bush bloomed).
