I always thought you were supposed to wait until the garlic leaves turned brown and fell over, like they do with onions. Is that not the case?

Nayan --- Nope. If you wait that long, most of the outer skins have rotted away and your bulbs will tend to break apart (and won't last as long). Here's one of my older posts on when to harvest garlic.
