Re: a few of your new plants.

Supposedly, horseradish is best harvested in the fall.  We've been trying for several years to make good horseradish sauce, but haven't found a method that's as good as store bought.  If you find one, please let us know.

I'm sure you know that sunchokes reproduce like rabbits!  BEWARE!  Razz   I have some in a box on the ground, and that doesn't contain them.  It's been 5-6 years, and I don't remember if I used weedblock or anything else under the box.

We have two types of Rosemary.  One does great; the other is kinda sad.  I don't know if it's the variety or the different location that makes the difference.  They're both in native soil.

Swiss chard? I haven't heard of a 20 year old chard but I have seen 2 and 3 year old chard. Ruby or rainbow is so pretty.

Boffer no worries with the sun chokes....we planted them in a container Very Happy as far as the horseradish I will keep ya posted on how it goes after harvesting Very Happy thanks for suggesting us to harvest it in the fall!!.....interesting about the Rosemary, as the one we just planted is replacing the old one that we lost year before last in a cold snap Sad I did not know there were more then one type of Rosemary

Sanderson....I didn't know swiss chard would go for a second year like we have found with kale, parsley & celery....that's good to know Very Happy
