Default Dry/wet season impact on harvest time

I don't have a picture of what I've harvested, but I have a picture of what I've not. Usually we harvest first week of August, but this year was extremely dry until about eight days ago, when we started a few days of very heavy rains. During the dry spell, we hardly ever watered the garlic, and as a result the leaves got quite dry and they look much different from last year. So it was difficult for me to tell by the leaves when to harvest. But anyway, I harvested about 20 or so of the 150 bulbs, and they look good. It's been about three weeks since scape harvest. Should I harvest the rest? How much difference does a dry or wet season make in when to harvest?

Thanks!
