Looks very much like Cherry to me Jamie.

You cut mine to 2-3" per my request and I'll try to remember to update this thread with how they perform later this summer.



Mike, I appreciate your report! Just don't let the plants get thirsty, and they should do good.
I have several pounds available that are already dug, iin a bin covered in loose soil in my cool basement, just begging to be planted. And much more to dig.
I want to ask my future customers if you would like me to cut root pieces shorter so I can cram more in a box. They typically would be 2-3 inches long. I have been shipping roots in 3-8 inch lengths, making it more difficult to pack tightly. I thing I can pack 3 lbs in a padded envelope, maybe even 4.
Possibly 14-15 lbs in a large flat rate box.
Prices and shipping are the same as last year, detailed in the post just above.
Also, last fall I planted a few Bocking 4 plants so that will be available next year.
PM me or email at kenearlg at gmail dot com please.
My sister crocheted this bag probably ten years ago. It's served well as a produce storage bag and a general tote bag, but is getting pretty well stretched out. Have been saving bags for another crochet project, but I love the loom idea also. I'm planning to make a backstrap loom. For those interested, I do have a drop spindle in my Etsy store.

That's cool. I'll sweeten things up and give a pie to the first three replies that would like this feature
Thanks Paul.
Dear site admins: Most forums have a mouseover preview in the topic list, but JForum seems to be an exception. I've looked at other forums using this software and don't see the feature on any of them, so maybe it's just not available? I have gotten into the habit of expecting it when I'm pressed for time and don't want to open a bunch of browser tabs. I tend to have way too many tabs open all the time
Worked like a charm, 5 clicks to the video. In case it helps, I did a video screengrab, it's 1360 x 950.
Everything worked fine, and took about a minute to return back to where the video was visible.
One thing I had never seen before on Paypal was the one-touch login  where Paypal told me a password wasn't necessary. Not the same thing as the browser remembering my login.
I wanted to try it again so I could take a video clip of the screen, but that didn't seem possible even by deleting recent history and permies cookies.
Oh, I bought it.

I purchased the pdf using Paypal for $1. All went well, no problems, download took less than a minute.
Upon coming to the download page, I was confused for a brief moment, thinking the process had failed...until I saw the download link.
A confirmation like "Thank you for your purchase" would be nice touch. Maybe there was something and I missed it, I didn't linger on that page before opening a reply.

I guess it's safe to say I will never run out of roots, so don't hesitate to order what you need! Our Russian comfrey plants are still green, we haven't had a hard frost yet. It's not to late to plant as long as the ground is soft. I just shipped a 12 lb. box to New Jersey. I could easily dig up a hundred pounds. Well, not easily, it's hard work, but easy as far as availability

My last message above is still current. Take care, fellow Permies
