It has grown very well in the pot. I am pulling the dead leaves out from the bottom. Should I put it inside the garage, or plant it in the earth for winter?

You are in hardiness zone 7a and lamb's ear is hardy to zone 4. So, technically, you could leave it in a pot all winter and it should regrow in spring. The rule of thumb is if the hardiness zone of the plant is 2 zones lower than yours, it should be able to withstand winter in a container. If you want to be on the safe side, you can plant it in the ground.
