Re: Harvesting Garlic

Last fall (I'm in Illinois) was the first time I planted garlic. It came up this year and now I'm not sure when & how to harvest it. What are "scapes" exactly?

I live in Northern IL and my Fennel stays in the ground in the butterfly garden all winter. When I transplanted it to my new yard, it had caterpillars on it. I believe I had identified them correctly as Swallowtails.
