Following on from another post of mine this is the first time ihave grown garlic and a few of the plants started to get rust. I caught it in time (I hope) removed all the infected leaves and left it in the ground. Anyway a couple of the stunted leaves were turning brown so I thought I would heft those ones up as I doubt they would grow any more.
So I have harvested them but now what? Everyone says you need the roots and leaves to cure and store but they have no leaves now. So can I still cure them but not store them? Should I break them all apart and freeze the cloves ready for planting in October? Or should I just eat them?
Any help on this would be great. I can follow 'internet instructions' on the ones that are left as they seem to be ok but im a bit lost as to what to do with these three bulbs....by the way they are big still as they were planted in Oct last year and they smell divine.
