Fall chores.

Soon the gladiolas, crocosmia's and calla lilies will have to be lifted. Wait until the frost has killed them before you dig them up. Cut the stalks, leaving about an inch with the bulb. Then allow them to sit in an open area like a garage, shed or basement for 2-3 weeks to dry. You can then remove the old corm from the glads and crocosmia's and store them in a mesh bag (I use an onion bag) Hang the bag in a cold room or garage that stays above freezing for the winter. The calla lilies need to be placed in a box with dampened vermiculite or peat moss and stored in a cool but not freezing environment.
Another fresh batch of horseradish was prepared this week. It will be available at the market this Saturday. I had another phone call today for an order, so I do not think it will last too long. The jars of horseradish can be stored in your freezer and will keep for about 6 months, so stock up while it is available.
Would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone whom supported us this season. It was a lot of fun and we are looking forward to next year's growing season. Happy Thanksgiving.
