Sounds good, Mark. Looks as if you can order tomorrow then!

I wasn't going to go to the May 24 herb spiral workparty, though I'd like to. We'll see how things go. If I don't those who go could pick up the comfrey roots from you for a closer pick-up for me.

Thanks for placing the order!

Fiddleheads are out now. They grow great in a shade garden BTW.

Hello All,

I am a little behind everyone else. I hope everyone is finding the plants they need. I need some help finding places to buy compost and straw in the Greater Portland area. I have read past message boards from last season. So, I saw mention of Jordan's farm and Bensen's farm in Gorham. Are these still good places to get compost and straw? If so, what is Bensen's number?

Also, I thought I saw mention of Ossipee Garden's in Gorham...am I dreaming? Thank you all for your help. I was able to go by Elaine's house today. Her gardens are beautiful! I am looking forward to meeting you all!

Take care,
Jen

Dryad's saddle mushrooms are out now. Look on dead wood esp. elm near water. Good to eat if you find a tender one.

Wow! Be sure to check out you local high school greenhouse! I went to the Medomak Valley High School greenhouse right next to the baseball field where my son plays and was able to get three chestnut trees for $6 each! I got a rosa rugosa for $1! I got an American chestnut, Chinese chestnut and a hybrid Chinese/American. They had more things I did not have time to check out. I'm going back.

It was recommended to get 3 trees. You need two for pollination and an extra in case one expires.

Plants I would like cuttings of (to root):
Goumi (Elaeagnus multiflora)

Aaron, I think I have some wintersown Astragalus. I'll check this week and see how it's doing. Happy to share a hunk if it's reasonably dense.

Everyone who wanted comfrey...it has arrived. I'll be potting it up for the time being and will heel the pots in. Let me know how and when you'd like it. Perhaps at the next meetup, or work party?


Also, if you could refresh me as to how many you wanted...

I have 26 total.

I had ordered 3, Mark. Could we talk over the phone to arrange pick-up?

Or, -- I think Lee & Tom ordered too. They live near you and work near us. Perhaps we could pick it up from them?
