I have been watching my garlic in the garden because it looked like it was getting ready to harvest. This is my first year growing garlic. I knew from what I have read that you have to harvest at just the right time in order for it to store well. Since my mind was wrapped around garlic; I decided to sculpt a concrete garlic. I got a little wild with the leaves, but I like the finished product. I also harvested the real garlic and it looks very nice.
