Have you tried to poke your finger down along side a stem  to see if there is a bulb deeper down ?  If there is , give the bed a light  feed with Fish , Blood & Bone Meal .. (don't get any in the crooks of the leaves it rots the plant ) lightly work it in the surface then water the bed well.

Too much nitrogen, too little phosphate?

I wonder what does that?  Too much nitrogen?  Not enough phosphorus?  It’s so tall...Do you think your garlic morphed into something else?  Was it Elephant Garlic?  Because that gets big...still—I’m stumped.

idk

It's not elephant garlic for sure. And, the bed gets watered. Too "warm" of a winter? The compost is blended. I need to experiment with planting in Jan, Feb and March. A Master Gardener mentioned once that it can be planted in March in this area.

I finally decided to harvest the garlic Even though it's only mid-May.  My best harvest ever after 7 years of trying. Very Happy
There are 23 righteous bulbs, a few mediums and a few teeny ones.  The medium and small will be chopped, dried and made into garlic powder.

Pretty good harvest, Sanderson!  Your harvest is a lot earlier than ours - ours will not be ready until July.  But then, there are the sauteed scapes...

Too much nitrogen tends to produce a lot of dark greenery 

 Bone meal is a good source of phosphate which helps for making good roots & bulbing up . Don't use it on carrots or they'll end up like several  cows teats .


 My garlic get a light dressing of , " Dried blood , fish & bone meal " in the ground they are to be planted in , then another dressing , about five weeks after , it's scratched into the ground around the garlics.

Making sure none goes in to the crooks of the leaves as it  will usually cause a rot risk where the grains touch the plant & becomes damp .

What I have read is garlic in the spring needs a boost of nitrogen to facilitate green growth but only initially and then as a side dress a short time later. I believe you can add and probably should a balanced organic fertilizer in the fall with an emphasis on phosphorus, in the fall you need nutrients for root growth. I like Espoma Gardentone 3-4-4 for added fertility and a 5:1 calcium to magnesium ratio. Here is a link to a University of Maine Bulletin for Growing Hardneck Garlic with some interesting information 

https://extension.umaine.edu/publications/2063e/

This is a link to Michigan State University Extension. I supply links and information not to undermine anyone's advice or experience only to show what the different states with their research and experience are making available. Much of which has made me a better garlic grower but keep in mind local experience and knowledge is invaluable.
