How do I know? Look for these clues: blooms and yellowing foliage.
My plan is to dig up a clump or two to see if the cloves have separated and if they haven’t, then I’ll let it mature a week or two more and then harvest it.
If you have garden space, consider growing your own garlic. It’s easy, inexpensive, and you’ll end up with a supply that you can use for both cooking and for replanting in fall. Another bonus is that it’s completely deer-proof.
We love garlic and I use it frequently in my kitchen. What’s your opinion? Do you like or dislike it?
