I've never grown garlic before. In January I had a few cloves that were going to go bad (sprouting little green heads). So, I tossed them in the garden. Did nothing else. And now I have ... well garlic cloves. Very strange. I read that when the top starts to die you should pull them. These tops were getting a little brown so I thought I'd check them out. Garlic bread anyone? They are currently drying and should be ready for eating in a few weeks!
