A row of garlic rounds were harvested and set to cure for 2018 October planting. New garlic is usually produced from planting cloves from normal garlic. The method of using bulbils and going through the process to get normal bubs in about three years means more of the current crop can be sold and the new crop is disease free since it is from seed (bulbils).
The rounds are harvested a bit before the main harvest, since the tops have essentially died off.
The bulbils produce rounds the first year, when the round are planted they produce a small bulb with around four cloves in the second year. When these cloves are planted they produce normal bulbs maybe a bit smaller but more than acceptable.
