Garlic pests and scapes
Hi everyone, I'm Minaku, and I'm new to growing garlic.
I noticed that my garlic was growing shoots, so I planted one clove in a smallish container (a half-gallon, maybe?). It's been a couple of weeks and it's grown 15 inches high.
I tried not to overwater, but it seems like I've done it anyway. There are tiny little white worms, looks like fungus gnats maybe, in the soil. Should I kill these guys, and if I do, will it harm the garlic and make it unfit to eat?
Also, when can I use the scapes in cooking? I'm dying to try them. :) Thanks for your help.
