garlic question w picture

I don't remember my garlic having these twisty tops with what looks like the beginning of flowering/buds last year. Does this mean I need to pull them or something else?

lol Curly things

Those things are called scapes. I cut mine off when they are about 10 inches, don't throw em out they are delish. cut into 2" pieces sautee with a bit of olive oil and salt n pepper.

You should cut them off though so that all the energy can go into the bulbs not into the flower stalk (scape) HTH
