Garlic Harvested about 100 bulbs or 22 pounds. I trimmed the stalks and roots and put them in the shed to dry. They will keep for about 7 months. I don’t use the bulbil stalks but plant a few of the bulbils to renew the stock. The bulbs are perfect with no insect damage.

I like garlic but could never eat that much in a years time. Nice harvest.

I harvested mine in July - possibly too early? My first attempt, but all looks well. I've used some of it and it tastes much nicer than shop bought.
I had 5 Elephant garlic and about 15 normal (quite small). I eat a lot of garlic so will probably grow more next year. Didn't realize it only kept for 7 months though! Presumably you can grind and dry it as garlic powder?

Storing in my cold room is ideal, about 15C. I dry when at harvest and trim and after 7 months plus it is still perfect. I also found harveting later it still keeps without deterioration, even if the skin has burst.
I have grown elephant garlic. It gets huge, but I dislike the flavour, so don't now grow it now.
