Maybe I should just try the seeds?

The sunroots are winter hardy in my USDA Zone 4b garden. I get reports from people about rodents eating their sunroot tubers overwinter. Wish that I could be so lucky!!!
The tubers in the field are long gone. I just checked my secret stash in the pantry. It looks like there are about 2 of the small flat-rate boxes left. Yay! I have finally learned how to store sunroots. Send me a purple moosage or email to make arrangements.

Joseph Lofthouse, October 2017 wrote:I started digging sunroot tubers today, I'm making them available for purchase by permies members. I'm asking $15 paper-currency for a small flat-rate box of tubers which includes postage. If you'd like to please me by paying with silver, I'd accept 5 silver dimes (1964 or earlier) and $8 paper-currency to cover postage. Some of the tubers are huge, so I'll be chopping them up into smaller pieces so that I can fit about 10 different varieties into a box. They are unnamed varieties that are the first or second generation of offspring from my breeding project. They are clones that have pleased me a lot. Back when I was keeping track of names for them, they got names like Wow!, WTF?, HF!, etc... Shipping to usa only. Send me a personal message or email if you need my mailing address, or grab it from the image on the bottom of my web site. I expect to be able to ship these until the weather turns super-cold (around mid-November), so lets make arrangements before then.

I'm interested in buying the Sunroot pack. What do I do?

They produce lots of seeds in my garden if the flower heads are bagged soon after petal drop to prevent predation by birds.
