I was up early this morning and noticed my garlic plants were tilted over,dried and somewhat brown. I had planted these bulbs 9 per square last Fall and now they show signs of maturity. Using a trowel, I carefully lifted the bulbs up and harvested some nice large garlic! I love to use garlic in my cooking and it has many health benefits too.
I hang them up to dry like this in my mud room for a couple of weeks for the best flavor. I save some of these bulbs in a cool dry place to plant again in the Fall. I separate the cluster and plant each clove pointed tip up.
