Garlic harvesting and storage

120 garlic plants just before harvest
Mid July is just the right time to harvest garlic. When Jay and I were digging this year's harvest, we were talking about how to know when is the right time to harvest. He knew that I looked for three brown leaves, but he didn't realize that I was looking at the leaves at the base of the plant, he had always assumed we were looking for three leaves with brown tips. To help explain this, we made a short video in the garden.
