I merged your threads together so people could see the attachments in your duplicate thread. I hope that's okay!

I'm going to go add  this thread to a bunch of other forums, so it's easier for people to find, too

Yes, the groundnuts are still available.

Here is the link: https://www.interwovenpermaculture.com/store/p8/groundnut.html

The comfrey we offer is Russian Comfrey Bocking #4.  It is sterile.  As of now, we only have root cuttings posted on our website.  I will try and get the root crowns posted on there ASAP.  In the meantime, if you do want comfrey root crowns, just order the root cuttings (link below), and mention in the notes that you would like crowns.  Instead of 15 cuttings, I will send 7 root crowns.  

Here is a link to the comfrey: https://www.interwovenpermaculture.com/store/p19/Comfrey%2C_Bocking_%234_Root_Cuttings.html

Just ordered the groundnuts from your eBay store! Someone generously offered to send me some comfrey already. Very excited about the nuts I've wanted to try them for sometime now! Thanks!

Did you let your American groundnuts grow only on the ground?  Or did you give them something to climb?

I have groundnuts on the way to me.  Should arrive in about a week.  Think I plant them near my water pool, maybe else where.

Hey Michael.  Sorry for the delayed reply.  I somehow missed your question.  

I both let them grow on the ground, as well as over a trellis.  I find that the yields are improved when they have a trellis.  

Take care!

Planted the Groundnuts, Yams, and Walking Onions.  All looked fresh and healthy - the onions already had roots.  Thank you, Michael!

Got my American ground nuts from AL about 3 days ago, double package in zip lock bags to keep them moist.  Planted them today next to my weather station pole in the mix of creeping charlie weed  (which I tore up some to keep away).   I was told to keep a lot of moisture for it, no problem as we recently got 1.625 inches rain.  So we will see what happens, if they can climb a steel pole.  I will not them get a high as my weather station about 15 foot high.  I planted them around the pole about 8 inches apart.  About 10 feet away from my garden bed.  If I have to, I will mow around the pole if they try spreading :)
 
And when my army is complete, I will rule the world! But, for now, I'm going to be happy with this tiny ad:
