Castle ,5... I tried again but it it still say's 'delivery failure'..if you want to send me an email at the address i posted below ,I will then reply.and have your correct address.Castle I tried clicking on your name in the profile and got nothing..in your profile it shows no email address..5 i copied and pasted your's from this site to my hot mail and it still wouldn't go through..
Chief, Don't Know why we're having trouble emailing each other. I sent one to your new address last night and thought it went through. If it's not too much trouble could you call me at the number in the above post? Thanks:)
on a side note I have never tried green root with this method,always been dry root..if any of you try a few green roots let me know how it works..I don't know but I think it would work great on green root...
I bury my fresh roots in the garden until i am ready to sell, i figure they lose about an ounce or 2 per 3 pounds. I have 6 p's in the ground now, sure i'll lose a quarter p but i will leave them there until i hear the asia buyer is in town around thanksgiving~ then I will dig em up and have fresh roots to sell. they usually bring a premium that time of year which makes up for the lost weight I never hold roots from year to year, not fresh or dry after all it isn't gold so no need to hoard it. The way i look at it if you have roots that were dug 2,3,4 years ago you are losing money waiting for a target price that may never come, you also risk theft, damage, and/or buyer rejection.
