I wanted to harvest them last Fall, but I forgot. So today I thought I would do some spring cleaning in my garden, starting with the Horseradish.
Step 1: Digging Out the Horseradish
Using your hands clear away the dirt to expose the root/Horseradish. Dig the rest of the root out using a shovel.
*A few plants had turned into 6 large clumps. I had left a few smaller roots in the ground for the next harvest.
Step 2: Cutting Off the Tops
Set them in a basket to take back to the garden.
*On YouTube people had grown horseradish in containers/ pots.
Step 3: Replanting the Tops
Since, my dogs think it's play time in the garden,.......I had to lay down bricks and placed a little fence around the Horseradish until they take root.
Look for my Next project..... canning horseradish ;)
Step 4: Horseradish
I was told by a friend who has grown horseradish his whole life that I can only harvest horseradish in months that have R in them. Not sure if anyone else knows that/heard that before. So I don't harvest during May - August
