ROOT DIGGING DAYS
It's time! The energy of a plant flows to the roots as flowering ceases and frosts kill the aerial parts. At this point, the root yields the strongest medicine. That point is now.
Group root digging is scheduled for:
Friday, October 18, 3:30 PM
Saturday, October 19, 10:30 AM
Sunday, October 27, time to be determined
Check for updates here as these dates are dependent upon the weather.
Other times can be added as needed - if you are interested in roots and none of these times work, please let me know.
Roots to be gathered will include:
Joe Pye Weed
Poke - Let me know if you want poke root. I'll be digging that offsite and bringing it to the farm for whoever wants some.
