Does your garlic fall over in the spring?

Hi All,
Every spring my beautiful garlic plants fall over, like
the wind has blown the over before they scape.
This happen to you?

no. perhaps it could be the variety of garlic, but you could put a wind-break up for them, just far enough away so that they are not shaded by it and see what happens...

purple glazer, I think
Started out barren alkaline. Now is is a mixture of organic fertilizer, vegi scraps, and peat moss
And these guy stand tall and proud all winder long with rain, snow, and very high winds
Haven't had much wind this spring

The high winds of winter did not phase them. Haven't had much wind this spring. And they do this every year. They will eventually recover when they decide to scape, then die out afterwards.
