Garlic has been the easiest thing to grow. Plant in fall, harvest in early to mid summer. We have had a decent harvest this year, but plan on doubling, if not tripling the amount we are going to plant this fall.
Around mid-April, I remove all the mulch and let them continue to peek through the earth
a month later, May
about mid-June, the garlic scape can be harvested
I harvest weekly throughout the summer
