Good morning al

I planted some garlic on Oct / Nov for the first time and curiosity hot the better of me d I pulled one I to see what it looked like

The bulb hadn't ripened and there were some unidentifiable black "blobs" under the first layer of the bulb.  



Does anyone know what they are 

Many thanks

    They look a rather like either small or baby slugs - but that's a guess
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Hi @Pete.8, they were very firm when I tried to squish them with my fingers

    I guess my guess was wrong then.. :)
    It'll be interesting to find out what they are hopefully
