When to pull garlic
From everything I've read, garlic shouldn't be ready to pull up for another month or two, but mine seems to be exhibiting signs or readiness. I planted a clove last fall and it sprouted pretty early this season. I was planning on waiting until late July or August to pull it up, but the bottom leaf has already turned brown along with the tips of the upper leaves. It's a softneck variety and is standing about six inches high.
Should I pull it or let it ride? I know deciding when to take it out of the ground is a tricky business and I've already dedicated so much time to it, I'd hate to make a mistake now.
