Using Fresh Garlic
Ok, so I'm totally new to growing garlic, but I've already reached some level of success in that I see all of the cloves (Siberian) I planted last fall popping through the mulch; Although, I was a little scared at first since there's still snow on the ground, but they seem to be fine somehow.
From what I've read and seen from grower's in my area, I should be able to harvest sometime around late June / July. My question is this:
Will I be able to use some of the garlic immediately or does it need to be 100% cured before it will be good to use?
If so, assuming a harvest date of early July, when would the earliest I could use the garlic?
Thanks in advance for any help here.
