Do you know anybody that has horseradish? If you do ask them if you can dig some up and replant it at your place and it will start growing. It's hard to kill. smile

I wish you would have asked a couple years ago.

When we bought our house in 95 there was a TON of horseradish growing in the back yard. Last year, I finally got the last of it killed. That stuff is impossible to get rid of, and if you mow it, it spreads.

I have seen the roots at grocery stores recently. Maybe super walmart? Don't you just plant a piece of root, like a potato?

Thanks for the offer I may take you up on that. Horseradish spreads by root right? The reason I say this I have seen people plant beds in a cut out kiddy pool to control the spread or plant the plant in a large bottomless pot in the ground.

When processing horseradish, cut the top 1 1/2 in of the crown, or top off the root. cut the crown into 1/2 in. square pieces length ways. On a two in. crown you can get 10 or 12 new sets to plant. Plant the sets just like you would a onion set and water the set. later in the fall, like the first part of oct. the sets don;t even need to be watered. Next spring those little buggers will be up and growing. I have done this for many years to start a new patch or help someone else start a patch. I sent a crown home with a friend from New Orleans 2 years ago and he has his own patch now.

ive been doing my own horseradish foy 20 years . i started my own patch by planting the tops, were the leaf starts by the root. make a patch away or by itself cause it spreads easy. i dig it up every 2 years, the roots get bigger that way, and replant the tops. i dont have an issue ith it spreading in my lawn.

    • Your best angle of attack should come like this: Do you need to control your trolling motor with your sonar? if so you have 2 choices. Lowrance uses motor guide and H-bird goes with Minnkota. If that is not a requirement than the field is wide open. IMO don't go with a screen smaller than 9" with side imaging there is so much detail that its hard to see on a 7" screen. I'd stay away from garmin or any unit that doesn't have a true down scan ducer that uses software to produce a down scan image there is just too much stuff lost without it.   
    • It's a pop or in my case an ice tea bottle with several 1/8" holes near the bottom of the bottle.  I then roll up paper towels and get as many as I can stacked inside the bottle.  When I need to cough I unscrew the top and cough into it.  It definitely softens then noise to more of a rush of air sound.
    • I use the standard frogs (non-Popping) as i feel i can always pop a non-popping.  I do like to throw into cover and hit those pockets and open area's ... there is times when walking it really makes a big difference on strikes.  Can't wait for the season!!  i was just experimenting with the frogs and not bass fishing yet.   We will keep in touch and see how ya all are doing with the frogs this summer.  I am intrigued also with the Zoom Horny toad, ready to try those also.   Cret
    • What spin is needed? We lost, this happens all the time in the playoffs, that is why they play the games. Our very own team has bounced two division leaders in the past 4 years, are we going to give them credit for those series wins or just completely focus on the negative and whine about everything. There are plenty of positives to take away from this season, really there is a ton to be excited about going forward if you don't solely focus on all thing negative.
    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows.
