We're just wondering if anyone knows if this is normal: I have some garlic planted last fall, and it is doing well. We also planted another variety early in spring to see how it would do. This weekend, the spring garlic was leaning over so I took a closer look. On some of the larger stalks there was a 'bulge' and the stalk was splitting open. In the opening were a couple small cloves, which were a few inches above the ground where there should be a good sizes bulb of cloves by now. Anybody have this happen? My fall garlic sent up the usual seed head which I've snipped off...and I was expecting the spring garlic to do the same soon, then this. I'm puzzled, any info would be appreciated.
