When about half of the leaves turn brown its a signal that garlic is ready to be harvested. Having planted the garlic cloves last October this is a much anticipated event. We've now harvested about two thirds of our garlic with just the Porcelan, Purple Stripes, and Marbled Purple Stripes still growing in the ground.
In another week or two the rest of the garlic will be ready to harvest. In the meantime we need to clean off and cure the couple hundred bulbs we've harvested!
