garlic scapes/sticky clovesMaybe it's the variety, but I missed a few scapes last summer and did not notice a difference in bulb size...for what it's worth. My question, it's Sept 29 and I'm planting my cloves. One variety I bought from a local farmer the cloves are almost stuck together, a little sticky/funky...should I NOT plant them? Just that one variety, from that one farm. (I've others from other seed places, and some from my garden from last year, planting about 6 varieties this year) I planted them anyway, but am worried about bringing rot or fungus into my garden.
