garlic ground cover dilemma
i planted all my garlic a few weeks ago, covered everything nice an neatly with straw, just like i've always done. much to my suprise, it looks like the seeds were still in what i thought was straw!! i now have several really nice rows of garlic covered with sprouting wheat(?). not sure what it is, but i do not care for it.
i tried pulling it out, but the weather has turned very blustery, and it is VERY tedious. i assume the sprouting things (i'll call it wheat, just to give it a name) will die off when the freezing temps arrive. but if i leave things go, will the wheat ruin my garlic come spring? maybe in spring i will need to pull up anything that is not garlic?
or just start all over again next october.... (a real bummer!)
anyone able to give me hope?
