split outer layer on garlic, should i harvest now?

14 years ago

I am in zone 7. Hardneck garlic was planted last fall and now they are just starting to turn yellow. Scapes are cut last week and the bottom 1 or 2 leaves are yellow the rest (range from 4 to 6) are green. But when I peeked at a few of the bulbs, some of them have the outer most red layer split, showing the inner white color. Splits are not big, but I am worried. Should I harvest them now? It seems awfully early for my zone.
