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.

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.@llama momma wrote:Here in central Ohio my garlic is planted in October.

40 years a gardener and going strong with SFG.
There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

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.
I have a hard time waiting for some of these underground crops too, it is SOOOO hard waiting to find out what you are going to get ...
I do that with my potatoes all the time, often harvest them ALLL too soon, Just because I am curious
