Is it used for smoking, or can it be smoked?

Wouldn't the mallorn seed contained within the box be organic though? ...Unless you are speaking strictly of the earth itself.

I'm going to venture a guess based on the rather limited criteria available... Is it the Red Book of Westmarch?

What it bequeathed upon a hobbit/the hobbits by someone not native to the Shire?

White-Hand A plea for clarification ...

Quote:

But that might be considered organic too, at least in origin.

So, to clarify, when you say that it's not organic, do you mean "not living" or "not organic in origin" (which would preclude materials such as wood, leather, textiles and paper)?

And I mean not organic at all. Not living, and not organic in origin. I hope this clears things up.

Is it waterproof ? Yes

A note for clarification on the last two questions: before it is asked, I'm considering the main hobbits to be Merry, Pippin, Frodo, Sam, and Bilbo. And when I say it is waterproof, I mean it can't be harmed by water.
