I work on a small organic farm. We grow garlic along with other veggies. Harvested the garlic scapes today. Thought I'd try selling them for bitcoin. We sell these locally at farmers markets and our farm stand.

They're fresh-picked from the plant today, so shipping them in the US shouldn't be much of an issue. They should arrive within a few days and still be fresh. Buy a few bunches and I can give a break for combined shipping. (Price breakdown below)

Price break down

1 bunch - 0.3 BTC
2 bunches - 0.5 BTC
3 bunches - 0.7 BTC
4 bunches - 1 BTC

I'm curious if anyone will be interested... I've been thinking about bitcoins and it seems like if it's going to be a viable currency someone needs to start accepting bit coins for basic necessities like food and rent.

Anyway, PM me if you interested

What are garlic scapes? They're good for pesto: http://blog.washingtonpost.com/mighty-appetite/2006/06/my_friend_the_garlic_scape_1.html

Being a foodie but knowing nothing about garlic scrapes....  How long do they last?  Do you keep them refrigerated or in the open air?  How can you tell if they have turned?  Does the flavor change over time?  I have used some pretty old garlic that while drier, still did the trick.

Is that picture considered a bunch?

They don't last nearly as long as garlic. Garlic, if kept properly will last a close to a year. Scape are much fresher. I'd guess they last 2-3 weeks. Best eaten fresh. You can either refrigerate them or leave them in the open air. Putting them in the fridge may extend their freshness.

You can chop them small and use them in the place of garlic in some dishes, but they are more fibrous. Garlic scape pesto is the way to go.

The photo is not a bunch. It shows a hundred or so scapes. A bunch is 10 of those bulbs and stems.

Next few weeks are hectic and probably no time to use them.  But I give you props for actually selling something interesting and useful.  Good luck on your endeavor.

Thanks, everyone. Sold out! I'll be posting when we harvest the garlic and maybe some other crops too.
