you get what you pay for

Still Going, 2014

We paid $5 for these garlic scapes. We ate the bottoms and put these tops in a Mason jar over three weeks ago.

you get what you pay for (according to Wiktionary)

    which is a good reminder of "the law of conservation of energy" in physics, which states that "the total energy of an isolated system cannot change", rather it is conserved over time. According to this law: energy can be neither be created nor destroyed, but can change form.... You pictured this law beautifully

  3. Delightful garlic scapes! And what a clever use of resources. And what a unique fragrance they must emit!

    1. When you first snip the ends you can smell the garlic, but the flowers really don't have any scent at all, unless you nuzzle directly into them.

  8. Beautiful picture, reminds me of a Charlie Chan movie or some such. Herbs last so much longer than flowers.

  14. Quite impressive flowers!
    Last month I found a garlic in the kitchen sprouting. I planted it at the garden. I wonder when it opens flowers.
