I have horseradish! Horseradish can be planted in the fall or early spring, so now’s the time to find someone to give you a root. It will grow in almost any soil and in sun or anything but deep shade. Experts recommend choosing a garden location removed from other plants as horseradish can become invasive. You should dig a hole as deep as the horseradish can stand in and cover all but the crown (top growth). Horseradish is supposed to be easy to grow and loves to be ignored. (Perfect!) This is my first time out growing horseradish, so it’s going to be an experience–and an experiment! I love a garden experiment. And a baking experiment. And a decorating experiment. And– Well, I like experiments. I have high hopes for my second year garden, and with horseradish part of it, it’ll be just that much more interesting.
I got this horseradish root courtesy of Heidi–thank you, Heidi!! (I’ll try not to spoil it too much or give it any cookies.)
I love horseradish, so I’m looking forward to learning about harvesting and preparing my own horseradish. Horseradish is one of those things people either love or hate. You?
