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.

    • They can sure humble a person. 
    • Well I tagged out this morning.   I got out later as my daughter and her family were over so I headed out after breakfast.  I drove by the field to see if there were any there so I could plan a route to the blind.   There was a fl8cknof Jake's and a flock of longbeards.  I quickly snuck into my blind and stuck a funky chicken decoy out.  As I was stepping into the blind the Jake's start clearing the trees between the blind and them.  They worked around out front a ways.  Suddenly I see 2 toms fly into the field.  The jakes immediately charged the toms driving them out of the field.  After that the jakes saw the funky chicked and headed over to check it out.  With the toms gone and time dlipoung away I picked one out and shot him at 30 yards.  He'll taste good on rhe grill this summer.   Got in the blind at 10 am and was done by 10:15 am.  It's been a long season. 
    • Fun in the yak today in SE SD caught and released a bunch of these today:
    • How can a bird with brain the size of a pea out smart us!
    • The 2 lakes i bass fish have slowed way down the last week.   A swim-bait ripple shad was hot ticket for a while but that is just a pike attraction right now.  Been switching to a Senko and helped a little.   Pads are coming up fast now and we should see a spike up in activity soon.  Cannot wait to throw the frogs soon as that is the biggest rush watching those eruptions in the water!!   Thanks for posting as i found it to be quite slower than usual also.   Which means i need to find better ammo during those times.  
    • Tomorrow we will be back at it
    • I am giving it a last hurrah tomorrow. Sorry I haven't been able to check in here much. I have hardly been able to get out this year between work, a baby at home, and a recent trip out of the country for a relative's wedding.    Last time I was out I had a real nice Tom within 20 yards after a very long standoff. I think I screwed it up by rushing myself a bit. He stood around 50 yards out literally strutting back and forth like someone had drawn a line in the mud that he wouldnt cross. He must not have wanted to fight with the strutter decoy we had out. He did that for 45 minutes to an hour and finally came our way after a hen led him towards us.    They came past us but were outside the decoys and angling slightly away from us. Then the tom turned and started angling straight at the strutter decoy. That meant he was basically quartering to me and when he was 15-17 yards or so out I drew because in the back of my mind i was thinking if he kept moving that way and past the decoy he would quickly be in a spot I would have had no shot.   In hindsight I think he had realized (once he got close enough) that he would have been able to whoop up on the decoy and he was coming in to do just that. I probably should have waited to see, but I didn't and right as I hit the backwall of my draw his head popped up on alert and he turned around and walked straight away knowing something wasn't quite right. I could have easily shot at him at 20 yards but he was facing away and I just didn't feel comfortable. I am confident I would have hit my mark but I didn't like shooting at something walking straight away when I am not experienced with bow hunting turkeys.   I know some people will say that I should have shot, but I have been bow hunting for awhile and never wounded anything because of a poor shot or poor shot selection, so I didn't want that to be a first. Hopefully I get a shot at redemption tomorrow!
    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
