first garlic!

while on the telephone with my stepmom (and personal gardening guru) who lives in ontario, i harvested the first bulb of garlic from my garden. it was a great to share the experience: i gave her a play-by-play as i pulled it out of the ground and peeled back the dead leaves, describing the beautiful fresh scent that the bulb emitted.

is anybody else in my bioregion harvesting their garlic yet? my raised beds drain well, so i’m not worried about mold… should i let them mature for another couple weeks, or pull them all now? i’m a neophyte, so any advice would be appreciated!
