    Re: Garlic Harvest Time!

    No scapes on mine yet.
    Some, depending on type have the stalks thickening up well.
    Think i am still a couple of months off before hanging them.

    No scapes neither. Mine typically get harvested by late July. Going to pay attention to consuming based on storage life of each variety. I've got Russian Reds (shortest storage) to Italian Softnecks (longest), Italian Purple (in between).

    Not yet.
    Still growing my few scapes remaining for seed (bulbil) stock, while the rest of the scapes have been harvested and munched on.

    Watering is now basically shut down except for a dribble in this heat for the ones with those scapes remaining.
    That helps form a solid bulb and tends to increase the oiliness / flavor.
    Also helps them cure faster and store much better.

    Way to tell when it is ready to harvest is the lower 3/4 of the plant's leaves with wither and turn brown / yellow.
    Never pull them before that or you are losing potential production.
    The plants will also lose a fair amount of height as they get closer to harvest time.

    Here's a shot from last year just before they were yanked:



    At one time these were well over four feet high.
    Now less than three.
    And easy to see the lower 3/4 has browned up.

    Be a few weeks yet from what I am seeing...

    Cheers,
    Nog

    Re: Garlic Harvest Time!

    Great stuff Noggin.
    My issue the last 2 years has been (I think) Rust on the leaves.
    So bad in fact that last season all my green onions were infected with it.
    Not sure if it is in the soil (its a community garden) or if it is from over watering.
    But yes, my scapes are out, one or 2 look like they are starting to open up to flower.
    But damn, the leaves look real bad with rust right now.
    So i am not sure what to do.
    And yes, i have been watering, but less the last 2 weeks or so now.
