Homegrown Turmeric


Yesterday the house was treated for termites. Since I had turmeric growing around one of the pillars which was going to be sprayed, I harvested some roots a little early:

Homegrown turmeric.

Turmeric is really easy to grow, as you can see here:

You can plant any time in fall and winter (provided you’re in zone 8 or warmer) and plants will emerge in late spring to early summer.

Normally I’d wait for the tops to die back before harvesting but I’d rather not eat Termidor(TM) treated roots.
