There's another patch I dug today, it was a garlic that came to me as rounds with no name from the Bonavista Social Club several years ago. They've been living in the garden and weren't dug several years in a row because they died down early and vanished, only to reappear in the spring. This year I moved them to a different location and gave some attention but they are still pretty small. The greens are smaller than a pencil on all of these that I dug. Some of these had fallen over and I suspected they were about to do that disappearing act again, so I dug them up too.
They had formed a 'nest' of rounds with 4-5 small stalks.
The wrappers on these are not too nice, and some yellowing near the roots on one of them, but the rounds are quite a size. Concerns about quality, might stop me from replanting these. Any thoughts about the health of the rounds would be much appreciated.
