I would like to put down a test cover crop of cereal rye and oats. Cover crop seeds are a little expensive. Could I get some rye and oat berries at the grocery store and plant those? Will they germinate? I tried this trick with grocery store garlic and it didn't work. I don't know if grain destined for eating are handled in such a way as to prevent germination.
