Shall I cut my Scapes?? (w/Pictures)

Here are our plants. I believe the straight up Scapes are Elephant. The others are mixed but many scapes are curling. We are on Long Island in NY. I say cut them, the lovely wife says not yet. Can someone settle this for us?

Thanks, Bchbound

Yes, go ahead and snap those puppies. They are most tender when under 18" and still curled. Just fry or grill them - you'll have some tasty meals and get larger bulbs to boot.

Listen to Tom! See "Too Many Scapes" earlier in this forum.
