so my garlic is almost ready to be pulled. I want to save some for this fall. Do I leave 1-2 plants in the ground for a bit longer after I pulled the others? I dont want to leave it in to long.

I just pull it all and braid it and hang it, then plant any leftovers in the Fall - you could easily just set some aside for that

We harvest them all at the same time, then save the largest, nicest-looking ones for planting in the fall.
