I'm a bit confused. You said the bulk of this years harvest would go into next years seed. To gain the most from this plan you would want to allow the bulbs to mature into cloves. Your picture shows a bulb without any separation. Are your bulbs not showing cloves? Are you not expecting them to?

Based on when your scapes started to show, the early harvested bulb and especially the picture of your middle bed, you are still 10 days to 2 weeks from harvest.

The picture shows what remains of my July '16 harvest for personal use. Yes, there is weight loss, a stronger taste and some interior green but still being eaten raw and cooked with.

I have about an 1/8 acre in crop this year. Scapes are about done and will be shooting for a July 5- 10th dig depending on weather.
