picture of ripe garlic stems?
this is my first year growing garlic, and i have no idea how i can tell that garlic is ripe. all the web site agree on only one thing - that figuring out when to pull garlic comes with experience, and the only indicator is brown leaves. that's where all the similarities end. some sites say to pull garlic when the leaves are 1/3 brown, others say 1/2 to 2/3rds brown. does anyone have a picture of what ripe garlic looks like? i'm in zone 6 and growing german extra hardy stiffneck garlic if that helps. tia!
