I wonder if you just pulsed garlic scapes now and froze in a bag with a little olive oil, if it would save until basil is ready for picking and making pesto later this summer. I can't get my basil to grow this year. Healthy plants, but they are only about 4-6 inches tall. About the same as when I planted them over a month ago. Too wet and not warm enough for them to take off yet I guess.
Sometimes I feel like I should be out in the garden with a sun lamp and a hot air hair blower. But then I again,I might short circuit myself. Sigh.
