Oh No!!

I left my garlic curing in the shade in my back yard, and we got a freak thunderstorm. The weather forecast showed clear skies all day, but the storm popped up out of nowhere.

The garlic got poured on for about 15 minutes, and I arrived home just as the rain stopped. it was dripping wet, but I immediately put it in my dry, dehumidified basement, on a rack, with a fan blowing on it.

The worst part is it was almost cured. I was going to trim it and put it in storage this weekend.

So is it a lost cause?

Sorry 😞 I didn't see this on the 3rd.
Almost cured. Good.

If it was spread out good. Good.

If it dried quick. It should be ok.

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Just saw this post -- no, I'm sure it's not a lost cause Smiling

Just give it a chance to get nicely dried out (again) before you store it.

Fast drying inside should be good.
