Nice TN! Thanks for sharing the pics, and glad you got out to enjoy it. Theres just something about watching them over a period of years and seeing how they develop... I sometimes find myself wondering what the ginseng will be like in 50 years in some of the areas that I've been watching over... Perhaps I'll be healthy enough to get to some of these areas in 25 years or so, but 50 is a stretch... lol
My home place here had 8-10 wild ginseng plants on it when I bought it... and now after several years of planting wild sim, and wild root red berries it literally has thousands of seng plants ranging from nice 3 prongs to 3 leafer babies...
It would be nice if you could see a fast forward of that... say what they would all look like in another 10 or 20 years.
nice roots tn, love those long necks. In another 50 years I might still be sengin ,but it might not be here on earth, lol. I'm 36 and in pretty good shape, and those ridges seem to be getting steeper every season, love it though. Glad to hear you've got some healthy numbers of plants on your property. That could be a nice little nest egg for your kids one day.
nice ones chief, lot better morning than I had. I went back to a place I didn't get through hunting last week. Hiked up the hollow and man it was steep. Looked great but didn't hold much ginseng strangely. I Fell stepping over a fallen tree and cut my arm on the way out, and dug about 7 roots, lol. Sometimes the mountain just kicks your butt. Don't know till you go though, risk/reward.
