A guy near me who grows 7 acres of garlic sells scapes in a bag with a label for $4.99.
It holds 4 ounces of scapes.
I throw mine on the ground after I pull them.
They are not worth the time to drive around selling them.
If I was in a market every week though, I'd probably bunch about 10 stems together and put a rubber band around them and sell them for 3-4 dollars. When you add it all up though, is it worth the labor for how many you end up selling?
