Zone 6a questions

I want to plant some garlic, which I understand I should wait until after the first frost to do. My question on this is, where do you recommend for purchasing garlic sets? Are there any varieties you favor? I have a thing for heirlooms, myself. Also, I'm hoping to get in one more "crop" of something in my raised beds before that first frost. For this I'd need a pretty fast producer. Maybe some sort of bean or pea? And advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
