Scape bouquet

Leek scapes. My CSA had garlic scapes last year, which I used chopped into mock chicken salad and other dishes, but this is the first year for leek scapes. One dollar a bunch at the farmers' market. Meant for the plate but I put them in a vase for now. I keep them in the fridge when not at home and will chop some for cooking when the mood strikes. In the meantime, I love that I have a natural, funky bouquet from the local market for two bucks.

The leek scapes don't scare me as much as the garlic ones did! That's a very cool looking bouquet - excellent idea!

Very cool! We don't get garlic or leek scapes out here. Boo!

Perfection! I have a pot of thyme on my coffee table...utilitarian and beautiful.

Confession: I had to Google garlic scapes and leek scapes.
