Polar Triticale cover crop

The past two years, I have used Polar Triticale as a successful cover crop in the gardens. I was amused to see that this year, one has gone to seed. Reminds me of the wheat fields I used to play in as a kid ... :)

For those who may be wondering, polar triticale is closely related to quadro-triticale but is different enough that Tribbles find it unappetizing and tend to leave it alone, in all but the most extreme circumstances. That is yet another reason why it tends to be a good choice as a cover crop, for those in areas were tribble infestations can be problematic.

Yes, you DO have to make sure they don't invade your gardens! :)
