    We just harvested some nice garlic. It's the first time growing garlic for us. What do you suggest we do with it immediately upon harvesting? I've heard to hang it, dry it, do this, do that. Please give me your advice!

    Tailgater, I grow the hardneck type. I just cut the stalk off about 2 inches above the garlic head after it has dried a few days. then I just put mine in mesh onion bags I have and hang it up in my shed. with "softneck" garlic you can twine the leaves together and hang it up. be sure and save some of the biggest cloves for replanting. I plant mine in sept or oct.

    old used nylons make for easy storage for onion and garlic, just tie a knot between each one that way you can cut off one at a time.
