How to Harvest Garlic

How to Harvest Garlic

The first year I planted garlic, I found the entire process extremely confusing. I had so many questions.

“How do I plant the cloves?”

“Which direction is up?”

“Do I take the cloves apart?”

I felt overwhelmed.

After I figured out how to grow garlic, I needed to figure out how to harvest it.

Could I pull it straight out of the ground? When was it ready for harvest?
