What a great bunch of pictures. Thanks for sharing. I enjoy pictures of the plants in the woods as well as root pictures. Not everyone takes the time to take the photos before and after the dig.

Got out this weekend and seen a lot of seng turning yellow, probably half of it looked like these, nothing easier to spot than when it is yellow and has red berries. All the nights in the upper 30s and lower 40s last week really did a number on the seng, probably another heavy rain and ones like these will be gone for the year.

My 5 year old got out with me Sunday afternoon and dug this nice root that had nearly been eat all the way through by something, the neck had also been eat off at some point as all it had was this year's growth bud on top of it where it had regenerated a neck, it had a small three prong top, it still weighed .6 of an ounce but would have been probably over an ounce if not for the fat part of the root being eat.

A big 3 from a few weeks ago, so weighted down with berries on this steep slope it had laid over, one of the very few plants I've seen this year that had more than a berry or two, think it was a combination of them just not producing very good and animala eating them.

This was my second biggest root of the year, weighed 2.4 ounces before being washed as you can see,this gives you an idea of just how rich and black of soil it came out of, was a pretty unimpressive 4 prong which surprised me when I felt the size of the neck and I realized it was a bigger than normal root.
