    My wife likes horseradish. Me not so much. Two years ago I planted some in our raised beds garden (Kalispell House is up in Mountains so I either grow boulders and rocks gardening, or make raised beds). The beds are 4ft x 50 ft long. After a single year, a 4ft x 6 foot Horseradish planting turned into 4ft x 25ft. Year two dug it all up and pulled to the roots. End of year two, despite digging up new shoots all spring/summer/fall, it still is coming up. I'd rather buy what she needs than try to deal with the wild spreading of horseradish. If I started selling it I could single handed crash the price for Horse Radish from oversupply it seems.

    For part of it; you might try "Three Sisters" (Native American Gardening). Plant say 3 seeds of corn in a spot, then around that plant a circle of Beans/Peas about 8-12 inches around the corn in a circle. This will allow the Beans/Peas to climb the corn stocks. Then plant Squash at 12, 3, 6, & 9 O'clock around the same circle as the Beans/Peas. The Squash will send runners out (from your raised beds you might place these runner to grow outside of the Vegetable Bed Garden depending on your layout and other conditions. The runners do not need soil, and will put off squash which takes lots of space. As an alternate; run the squash runners along each wall to keep paths/lawn open.

    Last Monday we hurried to the nursery to buy garden plants because they said they had to close up at 5 pm and not reopen .
    But Low and behold the Governor declared nurseries a Essential Business and allowed them to remain open ... people , being at home could get exercise putting in gardens and flower beds and doing yard work and by planting now would allow for vegetable crops to be ready for harvesting later in the summer .
    I can't believe someone in the government actually had enough sense to see how much good letting them stay open would do . They had lines on the floor to keep people "separated' and you paid for your stuff at a window , we ordered bags of ferterlizer , weed & feed , mulch, potting mix and garden soil and they brought it out and put it in the van for us... Freaking Cool ...
    One big ATTABOY for Gov. Edwards of Louisiana !

    I'm not a gardener so my planting will be stuff for the Wildlife. About the middle of April I'll start working on 10 acres to plant Sunflowers on for a Dove hunt that I host every year. My field is pretty grown up and needs lots of work. If the weather will cooperate I'll smooth it up, flatten it out some and drill Sunflowers.

    I also help a Buddy take care of a Doctors Duck Club and they want a Sunflower field planted. We have held water on his field and there should be no weeds or grass. We'll drain it, spray on some pre-emerge and drill it. He wants to plant about 14 acres.

    My buddies boys just found out a month ago that they were approved for a load and will get to farm again this year. After last year a lot of farmers didn't get loans. Anyway, I thought we would have some big equipment available. We still might. It would make a big difference in time if we do!

    I just found this thread. I have planted tomatoes, onions,sweet corn,many types of peppers,eggplant, squash, and cucumbers. I picked my first tomato 3 days ago and my second about an hour ago. I usually plant my first tomatoes Feb 15, but because of all the rain I did not get them in till Mar 1.
    GW If you don't get any gypsies for your relish, I have lots of them planted (180).

    We are going to start planning and prepping the garden this weekend. I usually like to get everything into the ground no later than Mothers Day.

    Going with some bell peppers, thai chilis, ghost peppers, sugar snap peas, green beans, broccoli, a few types of tomatoes, radishes, onions, rutabaga, sweet corn and potatoes.

    First thing I need to do is eradicate the rabbits that try to destroy our garden every year. I swear we are infested with them. Any given evening there are 2-3 big mommas around the property and a herd of little ones. Last year they constantly dug under the chicken wire around the garden and ate almost every little sprout that came up.

    little over a week ago we got the cold wether crops in; 100# potatoes, brockley, cauliflower, carrots, beets, turnips, cabbage. this week we will probably get the sweet corn planted(about 2 acres) and get the tomatoes moved from the greenhouse to the garden, we are thinking on waiting to move the peppers until middle of may. all the vineing stuff will probably go in next week; cukes, squash, melons, pumpkins.

    Morning glories in the trellis cage by the drive way.
    Transplanted one onion that came up a volunteer in the compost pile, and have started garlics, pablanos, Hungarian wax peppers, Best Boys (tomato).
    Got the trellises up for the native thick stem morning glories before they start impersonating kudzu.
    Got part of my materials for new raised beds. Got the list made for the rest.
    Nothing else yet.

    The native morning glories ... are those the dark blue / purple ones ?
    On the empty lot next door they covered everything one year, even into the trees 20 feet tall, just like kudzu . One Saturday morning a large group of people appeared in our front yard , a photo shoot... A bride was taking her wedding photo's with that wall of purple morning glories as her back drop ...it was beautiful and stunning ... I'll never forget it .
    A developer has since bought the property , cleared the land and built 4 houses and a fence.
    But I will always remember those morning glories covering the ground and trees .

    I usually plant stuff I can't get locally or is real expensive. I was given two big boy tomato plants, so the recycling bins that I never use will hold the soil for these, drive some rebar in the ground and tie wire the hog fence tomato cages to the rebar.. Check....

    Sweet basil to make pesto with, chives so I can have fresh all season, poblano pepper and wanted a hatch chili (anaheim) but couldn't find one. Yet.

    I grow some uber hots but only every 2nd or 3rd year, and I keep them in the freezer to cook with. Have ghost, scorpion, chocolate habanero, scotch bonnet in the freezer.

    Spicy oregano. Man, I'm telling you this stuff is the BOMB! Putting a leaf in your mouth and chewing it is almost as hot as a jalapeno! I grow this every 2nd year and dry it to use throughout the time I have it. Bonnie Plants sometimes grows them and they go to Lowe's and other places that have Bonnie Plants but they didn't this year so I had to order from ebay. At least I got some!!
    Got a .22 .30 .32 .357 .38 .40 .41 .44 .45 .480 or .500 S&W cylinder that needs throat reaming? 9mm, 10mm/40S&W, 45 ACP pistol barrel that won't "plunk" your handloads? Shoot me a PM! Also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Cylinderhone-756429174391912/

    The first BLT's with Home Grown Vine Ripened Tomatoes ( HGVRT's) were absolutely wonderful .
    Store had plenty bacon , stocked up because the tomatoes will be ripening a plenty ... soon .
    The plants are loaded ... I'm ready for more !

    The wife picked some Blue Lake Pole Beans and the Pumpkin plants are trying to cover the yard like kudzu...one was growing up onto a lawn chair.

    Planted some red and green bush okra ...still a mite cool but see some sprouting activity going on ...not worried , okra easy to grow .
    Going to make some shrimp , okra , tomato & andouilli gumbo tomorrow , still have 3 bags in freezer from last summer .
