Chief... It was very good. My wife and I ate the rest of that fish this evening and it was good again.
Think I may go fishing again tomorrow morning... sort of torn between wanting to seng hunt and fish.
What I am hearing on prices does not sound good... so I am leaning towards fishing agian.
I did get out this morning and checked on some of my wild sim, picked a few berries, and also picked berries from my seed bed again.
Ended up with 100+ berries this morning from my seed bed.
I also dug up a nice little 3 prong wild sim plant not far from my seed bed to inspect it and see how the root was looking.
This is the first time I have checked any since they were 2 years old.
It looks OK to me (for my place here). I don't expect it to get huge, but hoping for it to look wild and be average size.
For a 5 year old here on my place I am happy with the results.... but I do think it needs at least another 5 years before I would want to harvest and sell it.
It needs to develop more character, more rings, and have a longer neck with more flats to look like I would want it to.
With wild sim you hear 7 years mentioned a lot, but I think 10 is going to be more like it, especially here on my place where growth is slow.
Comments welcome on how you all think it is progressing.
Here is a pic of the full plant and root.
