A box of Inchelium Red garlic, planted on March 18, was ready to dig today. To cure them, I clothes-pinned them to a tomato cage in an always-shady spot by my front door. Most are small. Almost half didn’t grow into cloves — just big onion shaped garlic. We’ll see how they taste in a few weeks after they’re braided.
