More motes of randomness: Psycho Lemongrass

I had 2 ginormous clumps of lemongrass started from very humble grocery store roots, only about 5 bulbs per clump...

I dug one up to pot up for the winter and have fresh on hand.  The other one I dug up (as we can't overwinter it here) and plan to preserve it using the food processor/canola oil method.

Due to not having a good clean bucket to hold it in I popped it in the bathroom shower and added some water for it to survive until I could get to it:



 I closed the shower door soon thereafter and now freak out when I enter the bathroom because I keep forgetting that I left a HUGE CLUMP OF LEMONGRASS in there and it looks like a person is in there instead.

I probably ought to take that out before my mom visits soon.

Just thought I'd share :)

Wow, that is clearly a HUGE clump of lemongrass. I can see why it might seem a little freaky. BTW, I love the image on your header.

@Helen- Yep, it's day 3 of my having dug it up and popped it in my shower. I've been so busy I haven't had time to deal with it. Unfortunately all sorts of things that I thought I had hosed out before bringing it in are now emerging... >_<

@Janie- Gah, I know I should! I want to turn it from huge scary clump of lemongrass into delicious small jar(s) of lemongrass I can use over the winter! Heh, when I finally process it all down I'll share how many jars that monster took up!

What a bunch of lemongrass. Bet it will be yummy once you've got it processed.
