Will someone remind me of sources of garlic sets?
Here in Central Texas, things are picking up a bit after the doldrums
of summer. Late tomatoes are just starting (after being promised to
customers for WEEKS). They are suffering from a light hail attack and
wet weather. Indian summer gives us an unexpectedly good supply of
late okra. Bell peppers are finally escaping sunburn, as the sun
shifts to the south. First planting of spinach, made about three weeks
ago, has not emerged. Probably due to heat. Summer planted fall
potatoes were an almost complete failure; about a 1-5% stand.
Broccoli, mustard, radish, arugula are all doing nicely. Persimmons
were a pleasant surprise; we normally get around 20 boxes, this year we
have at least 50.
We are still about a month away from our first freeze. Highs have been
in the 90s; lows in the 70s. Lowest low, a couple of weeks ago, was 48.
While I'm rambling.... can anyone recommend a source of bare root
