I planted my garlic October 25, 2016 and harvested it July 17, 2017.  I planted two varieties, Music and German Hardneck.  Both did excellent.  The Music got a little bigger.  I think I got about 40 heads.  I will save the 10 biggest heads for planting this October.

I have planted garlic in years past without success.  This time I planted them in my sunniest spot and the soil was very fertile.  I have them hanging with good air circulation, until the tops are completely brown.  I will then cut the tops off, leaving about an inch of stem.  I have saved mesh bags to store them in and will keep them in my DRY DARK basement. 

In June the garlic started to flower, which are called 'garlic scapes'.  I cut them at the bottom of the stem and ate them.  Cutting the scapes into bite size pieces and sauteing them in olive oil. I served them with my sauteed greens, salt, pepper and BUTTER.  YUMMY! 001.JPGImage Enlarger005.JPGImage Enlarger

Beautiful garlic harvest.  I planted small cloves last fall and hence my harvest was smaller bulbs.  I don't use a lot of fresh garlic so I will have enough.  But when I was at the local farmers market I bought some large bulbs that I plan to use as my planting cloves in October.
