The Growing Challenge

I have decided to sign up for The Growing Challenge. I will be spicing up the garden this year with some new items that I've never grown before and some new varieties of my old favorites. This week I am planting some horseradish. The kid at the nursery told me that it will take over and suggested that I plant it in a pot. I love the internet! Found some cool info on growing and using it. http://web.extension.uiuc.edu/champaign/homeowners/001106.html

Hi Sarah - welcome to the Growing Challenge! I'm so excited there will be a fellow Sonoma County resident on board. There are several of us in the Bay Area. I look forward to perusing your archives.

Oca and yakon are new to me (as is horseradish), so I am very interested in how it goes!

What a cool girl you are! I miss you and I wish you were here to give me some good garden advise! EMail me when u get a chance I need your address there (since I just have your Mom's) and your wedding date (since I lost where I wrote it down since we last talked). I have a little wedding present coming your way :) xxoo, me

Hey, there. I really admire what you are doing with a previously barren piece of land. I would love to know where you are - sounds like you are in my neck of the woods. West Sonoma County?

I'm just east of the 101 near Rohnert Park. I wish we were out in West County. I envy you that wonderful sandy soil.
