Yea huntndig thats a heart breaker rite there makes me sad.Well this year I foiund and old root that had over 30 proior curls and half the root was gone like that one and it still weighed 3/4 of an ounce it would have been a realy good one,yea I know that feeling the root on the left is realy nice.
Guys here is 2 photos of some of our oldest & biggest roots.I was realy blessed this year to dig 2 1/2 to 3 pound of dry old root this year,my best season ever for old seng.It isent all dry,but it is closer now.
Yes huntndig I truly do love finding them I sure do.
The plant that I am showing you all here was one of the biggest 4 prong tops I ever found,realy huge,wide set limbs and leaves,,but to my suprise the root was only about 1 1/4 ounce and that I know is a great root,but you can tell by the size of this top that it could have been a 4 ounce + root.I was very thankful for this find,my biggest overall top ever,I weigh around 280 pounds,so by the spread of the top and me in the photo you can see what I mean about its size.
I hope you all enjoy these photos I have some more good ones to share,and please feel free to add to the thread I love looking at seng.
