Not Everything's Early This Year

I've grown accustomed to celebrating Memorial Day accompanied by a side of garlic scape pesto.  But when I went out to the garlic bed last Saturday, there were no scapes!  In a season where everything else has been early, I was a bit concerned.  Was it possible that I'd only planted cloves from a scapeless type of garlic? (I did have some of that last year, but only a bulb or two.)  Had something else gone wrong?

Never fear, the scapes were just taking their sweet time.

It's rather amazing how fast they grow, once they decide to get growing.
