Growing Garlic

Hi. I'm located in Brisbane. Planted Italian white based on recommendations for the climate. Garlic grew well until a month ago. Had a massive hailstorm after a very dry period. The garlic has now created various new thin leaves. on inspecting one, it seems like the cloves has started to grow inside the bulb. I wanted to grow the garlic for seed for next year. Question is, should I harvest all the garlic and let it dry out to stop the growth and will it grow next year? Also, some cloves have not formed. Can I harvest and replant next year and will it grow?

I don't grow it. You don't mention when you planted it etc. Maybe the hail (rain and N in the hail) gave the crop a boost and the plants started shooting. Maybe harvest it and see what you can save for bulbs for next year. I would say you need some kind of bulb (maybe even small) to be able to grow from next year.
