garlic and cover crop order
A couple days ago I ordered:
Great Garlic Combo - 8 oz of Duganski & 8 oz of Susanville from Territorial Seed Co. 8 oz = about 30 cloves.
I think this may not be enough garlic to produce enough to eat and plant next year. I didn't grow enough this year.
So I'm ordering from Johnny's:
Garlic, New York White (softneck, 3 heads)(link)
Garlic, German Extra-Hardy (stiffneck, 3 heads)
Fall Green Manure Mix, 1 lb(link)
The garlic is back ordered till Oct 1, but that's fine.
The green manure is a cover crop that worked well for me last year. The only trick is getting it in early. It'll go in after the tomato, squash and corn beds are cleared. The tomatoes might as well come out now as they aren't doing much. The beds that are cleared late will be planted with winter rye seed, which I get at my local True Value hardware store.
