First Bulb of Garlic

first homegrown garlic

Our garlic isn't really ready to harvest, but I am so impatient that I've been looking for any excuse to pull up a bulb. Running out of store bought cloves while making BBQ baked lentils the other night was the perfect opportunity. This is Early Italian Red, a softneck artichoke variety that is (obviously) supposed to be early. The bulb was a decent size, but the skin was still thick and the cloves were very small. It was also very strong, though it is supposed to be mild when full developed. I'm interested to see when these will actually reach maturity.
