Hey all :) Long time no see (I have never quite figured out this new format). Anyhow, just a quick question about my garlic.

I pulled it up from the ground....now what do I do with it? Do I leave it outside in the sun for 2 weeks? In the shade? Do I tie them together?

Thanks for any tips!

Marina ;)

I harvest my garlic when half of the leaves are brown or almost all brown.

After pulling the garlic I gently brush off the soil, [DO NOT WASH IT]. Then hang in cool dry place for about two weeks to dry/cure.

Marina, you and I planted our garlic and just about the same time last fall. You asking about it then gave me a great idea to try it out. And every morning I go and water my garden and wonder, 'when do I pull this garlic out?' Once again, you've already asked the questions that I needed answers too. Thanks!
