In regards to discarding sprouting garlic.... I just stick it in the garden. Some grows, and probably some doesn't. We have garlic growing in little corners everywhere around the house. When the blossoms start to dry out, dig them out, let them dry slightly outside (I leave 3 -6 days), cut the stalk and store. We haven't purchased garlic for years.
When you pull the garlic out of the soil, little hard "bulbets" stay in the soil and grow into new plants. Easy, peasey.
