Today, I decided that the garlic was ready to check for harvest. A few of the lower leaves on the garlic have already turned brown, which is the first sign the bulbs are getting close to being ready to harvest. After using a garden fork to break up the soil around one of the garlic plants, I found the bulb was small but fully formed. So I went ahead and harvested the rest of the plants. In total, I got fifteen plants out of the original three bulbs I bought from the farmers market last year. I plan on using most of the garlic in this harvest to plant out more garlic later this year. I expect to get about forty to fifty plants from this. I will only be planting the larger cloves and the smaller cloves will be used for cooking.
