And yes! we made the pesto. We did use mostly garlic scapes for the pesto, but threw in some lovely home grown basil from our window sill as well. We'll have to be sure to pick up a few big handfuls of them next weekend to experiment. If we get a thunderstorm soon (which we are really hoping for!) and it cools down a bit, I think I'll look into making a garlic scape soup.
