I have never grown garlic before and had no idea how to know when they were done. The plant died back and so I pulled it out to keep the garden looking nice and out these guys came. I got on the internet (something I should have done when I planted them)and I guess they are ready. I made two mistakes though. I didn’t let them cure in the air and I washed them. They are small but I opened one up and it seems just fine. When my other plant is ready I will handle it better though. Another thing, the other garlic plant has gone to seed. Is that a bad thing? What can I do with the seeds? Should I handle that plant any different than the others? Maybe it going to seed is why it is not ready to be harvested at the same time. I couldn’t find any info on the internet.
