Cool weather garlic

I'm looking for a nice garlic variety that will grow well in my neck of the woods (Coastal northeast). Anyone have a particular favorite?
On a related note, the good folks at the nonprofit group Kitchen Gardeners International have put up a new page on their website about growing your own garlic...short, but quite informative: http://www.kitchengardeners.org/growinggarlic.html

What a coincidence! You have the same name as the founder of that organization! Fancy that.
I like your idea in founding KGI, but this sort of thing - trying to conceal your association with the group in order to get a plug in - is definitely going to hurt your cause.
Why not just say "I put a page about garlic at....' or just have a reference to the web page in a .sig file?

The website is interesting, and an idea worthy of support, and well-executed too (for a start, obviously it's just a beginning).
So I figure I'll give him a second chance: maybe in his enthusiasm, he just got carried away and/or doesn't know the ways of newsgroups and didn't realize this wasn't acceptable behavior.

Well, now that you bring the subject up..... Personal page, in my .sig below, with garlic information of questionable usefulness. But most of you probably knew that.

Same here in north central PA - the worst of the storm is evidently going west of us. Our power's been on-and-off all last night and today, though.

Hit the website for Filaree Farm in Okanagan, WA. The only thing they sell is organic garlic, but they have about 50 varieties in stock this year. www.filareefarm.com
I just got my shipment of hardneck and porcelein varieties to plant. Beautiful stock. They shipped monday, 9/15. The box got to the PO in Alaska on tuesday, 9/16.
These are the varieties I'm planting tomorrow: Russian Red, Siberian, Killarney Red, Germany, and Romanian Red.
Cheers,

I'll second that. They kept their promise about delivery time and the garlic arrived looking just great!
Even though I hope to parlay this garlic into some side cash, Filaree Farms will probably get additional business from me next year.
