I used to grow Music when I lived in New York. I loved it! Always did beautifully, stored well.
This was my first year growing garlic in California. I grew Inchelium Red and Red Toch (had to switch to softnecks for this climate) and they did better than I expected, considering they get a decent amount of shade. The problem is I can't seem to remember which is which! I thought I wrote it down, but I didn't, and they look really similar. I'm going to try a taste test. Anyone familiar with these two have any advice on telling them apart?
As for curing, I've never washed bulbs. I hang them somewhere shady and breezy, under cover if there's a threat of rain, and when they're dry I trim the roots and maybe peel off the outer layer if I think I can spare one.
