Sorry, no Duckweed Right Now

December 10, 2015

For some reason, am suddenly getting many requests for fresh duckweed samples here in the early part of winter. Even though I made that offer two years ago and even  personally paid postage on envelope-sized amounts, am still willing to fulfil requests BUT with the following caveats:

  1. Wait until late spring (May) when my ponds are actively growing again.
  2. Send me your address in April or May along with….a. $2.00 for a tbsp of fresh duckweed in a zip lock bag in a regular envelope or b. $8.00 for as much as I can pack into a USPS small Priority box. (roughly 2 cups)   or  c. $90 for a five gallon bucket size (or shipping and container plus $30- whichever is cheaper)  This is a mixed species: Lemna turionifera and Wolffia minutia.
  3. For summer orders of solar-dried duckweed in lots of 1  kg to 1 metric ton, please email me at tamraf9@gmail.com

On a perso1209150746.jpgnal note, am restoring my grandfather’s 80 year old rocking chair. Don’t have a bandsaw or I’d make replacements for the broken wood pieces. My grandfather  spent most of his senior waking and napping hours in this rocker. Fond memories.

 

 

Oh yes, and a VERY fun project- am brewing my first-ever batch of Christmas cheer- a Pilsner in a five gallon bucket.
