Robert,

I was wondering if you mention in your new book, the preparation and edibility of roots, for example: making sassafras tea
The book sounds very interesting thus far.

Thanks

Sorry Jason, The book is all about how roots grow & thus where to put the compost, fertilizers, mulch & water - not where you would suspect. Roots grow .5 to 3Xs to even 5xs wider than the foliage (dripline) so the best use of these materials is well beyond the dripline. No recipes. But not a bad idea. Robert

Ok, Thanks.
What you're saying about root distances & compost locations sounds very helpful!
