hardneck garlic left too long in ground
Hey Allium Folks
procastination is not a garlic growers friend.
I left my hardneck garlic in the ground far too long and the papers have all mostly rotted away. The cloves them selves look fine but mostly not hanging together in thier garlic bulbs. I have several questions:
1. if there is no obvious rot are they still okay to eat?
2. can or should I replant the cloves?
3. is it too early to plant now?
4. will they spoil before I plant if I wait until the correct date to plant? With no papers I worry they will dry out.
I should of not procrastinated I will do better next year, I promise.
