I've just noticed that my normally wonderful display (and harvest) of garlic has rust this year. How does one deal with that? Does it wreck the crop? Do you have to burn the leaves or can Mother Nature deal with it in the compost heap?

I had the same problem this year:

If it's severe, it will reduce the crop. Bulbs are still OK to use for seed, as the fungus usually stays confined to the leaves. Remove the leaves and trash or burn them.
