TOPIC: So... how much did you dig this year ?

So... how much did you dig this year ? 1 year 10 months ago #37872

I expect everyone's digging season is over by now. And for most if you are drying roots they should be about dry by now.

Just wondering how much you folks harvested this year ? and if you have sold any, wondering what you got for it ?

Myself - I decided early on that I was only going to go on 3 hunts... and I stuck to that (since price was looking to be low this year).

In 3 trips, I had one pretty good hunt and two that were just so so..

I ended up with 7.2 oz of dry seng.

I sold 1 oz to my Nephew for personal consumption... got 30.00 for that ounce. He offered 40.00 per ounce.. but he is my nephew so I made him a deal on it.

30.00 oz = 480.00 pound... which is about what I am hearing TN seng might bring this year anyway.

I know some of you guys went on several hunts and dug a lot.

So...

How much did you end up with ?

If you have sold any... what did you get for it ?

I would be interested in hearing from diggers in all states on this.

Thanks

Hobbler... I knew you did well this year. That is a GREAT year for sure and you got some really good prices too. Top quality seng fetching some really good price.

I have not checked on TN prices in about 3 weeks now. Hopefully they will go on up some (last check I did was quoted 400.00 /lb for dry).

Noting to get excited about... I may check again in about a week and see if our price has moved up some.

Thanks for replying... I would think your totals are going to be hard to beat.

I got 3.1 LB this year down from 6.0 lb last year due to in part the bad drought here. Still holding on to it.

Hobbler,
That is a lot of root brother. Glad you have great spots to hunt. Hey I will dig you some goldenseal root next summer and send it to you. I didn't get out to dig any due to my total hip replacement. I am all better now and can't even tell I had it done.

I did get to plant 2 lbs of seed in the past couple weeks.

TN, didn't dig any wild seng again. Just been planting some seed. Sure miss it tho. I have a few spots I could dig some nice wild seng from. But I know I would be disappointed that it would be gone after I dug it. So I just leave it and check in on it from time to time. Just enjoy seeing it.
