Gardener’s almanac (Nov. 23)

Warming up with horseradish — Close on the heels of my love for garlic is that for horseradish. While we (should have) planted garlic in October, we harvest horseradish usually in November or December, once a hard freeze has killed the foliage. “The large roots can be harvested, while smaller, pencil-sized roots can be cut in 6- to-8-inch-long sections as ‘seed’ or ‘sets’ for next year’s crop which are then immediately re-planted,” Ward Upham of K-State writes in this week’s Horticulture 2013 newsletter.
