No cloves ?

Post  reservoir on 5/4/2014, 6:00 am

I planted some garlic in October.  The stems are looking superb.  Could not wait and decided to pull one to see the cloves, as usually I get small plants and small cloves.

Help me understand what's happened.

Thanks

Here in central Ohio my garlic is planted in October.  My leaves looking good right now too but the leaves develop prior to bulb development.  Bulbs in my area are ready to pull around late June, mostly July.  So from planting to harvesting it typically takes about 9 months.   Do you have a garden nursery or Agriculture university you can contact to verify planting and harvesting dates for your area?

+1 The garlic needs a few more months of growing time. You will know it is ready for harvest when the foliage starts browning and falling over.

Thank you both,  llalamoma    camprn,  I  think mine should be ready end of july, I just thought it should have started cloves building.   It smelt real good though,yumyum.
