Thanks, Dorene!

> Make sure your garlic is completely dormant (dried down) when you ship the braid, wrap it in bubble wrap with tape so it doesn’t come apart and maybe put a few discrete holes in the cardboard box so it can breathe (doesn’t have to breathe much, but some air is good) and you should be okay.  If you have a long braid, you might want to secure it to a “backbone” of cardboard, then wrap the bubble wrap and put it in the cardboard box.
