Default Black Spots On Garlic Leaves

I dug this garlic one week ago (about half my crop) but stored it in an attached garage. The garage was slightly humid as the weather changed about midweek. The leaves were a healthy green (I think I picked a little early due to the expected heatwave). When I returned to retrieve the harvest, I noticed these dark spots on the leaves. One bulb out of 4 boxes had white powdery spots on the wrapper but nothing on the leaves.

I harvested all but a few of the remaining bulbs today. No spotting of leaves in the field. I have the newly harvested garlic isolated (in my air conditioned living room) until I prepare an alternate location.

I have stored bags of weeds in the garage until pick up day. There is a fungus that blows in but the result looks more pronounced than what I have pictured. I hope nothing transferred to the garlic from the garage "air" .

Any insight would be appreciated!
