Time to plant garlic. One clove of elephant garlic is bigger than an entire bulb of any other garlic. I am trying six different varieties this year. I made these fancy signs to mark the different varieties. Hopefully after harvest I will be able to figure out which one I like best. Separate each bulb into cloves, dig holes for each clove six inches deep, plop a clove in and you're done after about 2 hours.
