I've got two different crops of Radico, two different crops of Jamila
and two different crops of Kenzi.

(Still dragging out the last few samplings.... they'll ALL get posted,
I promise. It's about 45 minutes per henna, if anyone's interested,
being scrupulous about no cross contamination and like that.)

You can see some slight seasonal changes in Kenzi's spring and summer.
You can tell that the leaf is dryer in summer than spring.
Radico crops tend to be highly variable ... in sift and in amount of
dye added. The amount of dye SUDDENLY DROPPED when they saw a
micropic of their 2001 dye-infested crop. Jamila is incredibly
consistant from one season to the next.

I think its important to keep going with this database ... the bigger
the database, the more accurate the picture.
