Garlic bulb forming on above-ground stem of plant

Garlic    Syracuse, NY

Can anyone tell me what's going on with this garlic? It's bulbing out from the stem!

My understanding is that this can happen when the garlic has been subject to stress, such as an unusually harsh winter. It should not affect the bulb below ground so you can harvest as usual.
