Softneck garlic harvesting
I planted a few cloves last fall just to see what happened. I'm in Massachusetts, so i know hardneck fares much better, but I really had no reason not to try.
Only one plant came up early this season an I was hoping to get a few opinions on when to pull it. This variety won't be growing a scape, but it's about one foot high and the bottom leaf has browned and died with the remaining tips following suit.
What should I be looking for as a sign that it's ready but not over-ripened?
