Same here....I always think come November "there, that's done." Then after the last snow is gone there's still loads of stuff to clean up. Horseradish: Do you have a problem with it being invasive? I have it coming up all over the veg and it's impossible to dig out. I give away roots every year and still have more than I can use. Do you know of a good way to can/preserve it?
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

I have only had it in my herb bed a few years and no problem with it coming up else where.
I got my start from my mom who has had a patch for years 15+ and it gets bigger but does not roam or reseed as far as I can tell.

How old is your patch?

I grate the cleaned and pealed root put it in a jar and add some salt , just a little , and vinegar. I use just a small amount for preserving but you can use more . Keep it refrigerated . If you make small batches and use them I prefer to just add a bit of oil and skip the vinegar. Beware it is super strong and may make you have breathing problems when processing.
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.
