Offer: Horseradish plants (North Greenwood) Gifted 16d - Small but vigorous horseradish plants. I have at least 5 needing homes. Plant in a pot, not in the ground or you too will be offering horseradish starts--these came from a root that escaped out the drainage hole into the soil below. I now keep my plants in a raised pot along with daffodils, which finish blooming about the same time the horseradish leaves come up. Leaves can be eaten when small, as well as using the root. Dies back in the winter then comes back in spring, sometimes with friends.

Offer: Stovetop Steam Canner (North Greenwood) Gifted 99d - Aluminum stovetop steam canning kettle for home canning...probably. It has a shallow bottom part with a ventilated cover to set the jars on, then a tall lid that fits over it such that it looks kind of like an upside-down pot. I read mixed accounts about whether or not steam canning produced safe results and never got around to using it anyway. If you're more knowledgeable about the craft or have a different use for something like this, please take it away and put it to better use than I have!
