Hi...first time digging and after reading and reading some more I'd like to meet a seasoned ginsenger for a hands on Q&A before I sell. I'm in Newbury. I would be glad to buy you a cup of coffee and learn some more about Ginseng. Thanks Fill
I'm going to go weigh it at the neighbors in a little bit. I'd guess just over a lb.,but i've got about 2 lbs. of questions. Don't like to type and don't like to try and describe what I'm trying to get answered and then try to understand the answer based on did I use the right terminology in the first place. I'd meet you in Woodstock,that's about halfway to Dorset. I included some pics. How do you determine how dry it is? Most of it has been hung up by the ceiling next to my pellet stove.
That's definately not ginseng. Do a little google homework, or stumble around the forum here and you'll get the gist of it. When you do choose to start harvesting wild ginseng, MAKE SURE you get your collector's permit first and go over the state rules before picking ANYTHING. The permit is super easy to get, you just fill out a form with your name and address and they send you one for free (at least in VT thats what they do). Lets pass on meeting up this time, I think a quick google hour would be the most beneficial for you. Heck, right here at the forum will have just about everything you need to know. Google will be good for more history and botinical info.
