elephant garlic, dug, separated 2 cloves by helpfuls

I had planned on leaving the extra elephant garlic in the ground. My DD dug it up, separated it into cloves, and brought it to me. She was a dear.

Being as it is 104F and sunny, please point me to how best to store the cloves for planting and for eating?

Thank you,
a Garlic Novice

Hello Merry

What is DD or even DH? Put the cloves into a paper or net bag so it can breath and place it in a cool place in the house. Never in the fridge. From my limited experience, elephant cloves last a long time.

Thank you for helping the elephant garlic.

DD = Dear Daughter, DH = Dear Husband, DS = Dear Son, DW = Dear Wife

Believe these can also mean D#@n Daughter, Husband, Son, or Wife, depending on the situation.
