I've been embarrassed to show any of the garlic planted in my garden because they looked to be in bad shape. So yesterday, as I was reading through blogs, I realized what was going on! My garlic had flopped over because it was time to pull it! So off I went with my handy dandy spade.

(pay no attention to our rusty fence, it's on our to do list)
And dug up some garlic heads! I left a few in the ground that hadn't sized up yet. I came away with 1 monster head and about 6 normal sized ones. Apparently the "garlic" I purchased was a softneck variety, so next year I buy hardneck and keep a lookout for scapes!

Happy gardening all! Now I go see what kind of trouble I can get into today.
