Growing Garlic

I have some garlic growing well (I think) in my semi-shaded vegie garden. I planted them in late April this year and all the shoots are pointing up nicely right now. They are different thicknesses, so predict that I will have some bulbs that are much smaller than others. My question to put out there is; how should I best store my bulbs? When the tops yellow off and I harvest say 20 bulbs, and use about 1 bulb per week, would they last me the 5 months I'd have them for? Can they be stored within any medium to keep them longer (like dry sand)? Or just the dark?
