That is a nice one Maya..
PS - I would not sell one like that.
I look thru my roots and pull out the smaller roots with long neck stems (20+ years) for my own personal keep and eat stash.
You are not loosing much weight, and you are getting some excelent root for yourself to enjoy.
I did find two nice large double top roots last year and well - - - I kept them too
It took me nearly a month just to eat all of the root hairs and smaller root from those big ones.
I still have several roots left from last years keep stash - should be enough to last me until this years harvest comes in.
On the Scouting - I have not offically been yet although I have several wild patches in and around my wild simulated plantings that I have checked on a few times this year.
I do plan to go on a few real scouting trips soon, and like last year I am going to mark what I find with my GPS.
Last year I marked several in June, that I would not have been able to find in late August without the GPS marking (tops had been browsed).
Good Luck to you Guys this year !
PS --- here is my best long neck picture.
