Vendors for Garlic for fall 2013?
So, as I'm sure some of you are aware, a lot of local garlic crops were wiped out by the aster yellows disease. I've been trying to grow some garlic myself, and I wasn't aware of this issue, but now that I am, I have questions for anyone who might know the answers:
1. I purchased some garlic this fall (fall 2012) from WeGrowGarlic. They haven't said anything about aster yellows but I know that some areas of Wisconsin have been affected by it. I've also heard rumors that they will not be in business this coming year. Does anyone have any details about that - and about whether the garlic I got from them is likely to be infected?
2. Anyone have recommendations for a non-Midwest company to order different varieties of garlic from? Preferably one that certifies their product as disease-free?
