When your garlic scapes have curled down and into a circle you can remove them. Save them and cook them up in a little butter or olive oil. A few weeks before harvesting you should stop watering the garlic. When the garlic plant has about 3-4 dead leaves on the bottom of the plant is when you should at least dig up one bulb to see how it has sized up. If the bulb has plump cloves, then dig them up. If not leave them in the ground a little longer.
