Q.How can I save a very late garlic harvest? I want to try and dry what looks to be good bulbs.

Last fall I planted garlic in my 8500′ high mountain valley garden for the first time. In early August I was unexpectedly called away from home to help my son and his family. It is now Oct. 7th and I have just returned home. Though neighbors helped out by watering my garden during a very dry fall here in the mountains of Colorado, they did not attempt to harvest my crop of garlic. They stopped watering the garlic over three weeks ago and there have been fairly steady nights of freezing. My garlic plants have entirely brown and dried out leaves. I dug up a few bulbs and they look healthy but moist with no leaves staying attached. I want to dry it as best as possible but I’m unclear of how best to save my several dozen bulbs. Please advise.
