Thanks for that tip - my garlic is growing well and I tried some green garlic scallions mixed with some green onion scallions ==== yum !
Did I understand correctly that you are dehydrating the garlic greens?
Can I dehydrate some of the onion greens also?

Most of the garlic is harvested as garlic scallions which we eat in profusion in the summer and fall,
bulbs, leaves, scapes, and all. A very great lot of it is chopped up and
dehydrated ... again the whole plant. A few are left to mature into bulbs,
especially the music garlic which is very large. So the garlic cloves for
this purpose are planted 3" or closer in both directions and the bed is
harvested clean. If the garlic isn't being used all at once, rather than
between the plants, I will pull every other plant to give the remaining ones
some extra room. But in the end the bed will be harvested clean and something
else planted there.
