its been a long time since I dug a 5 oz. root..and I guess it will be awhile longer ..the one touching the 20 is 4.97 oz...the other two are 3oz. apiece... ...sure would have like to seen how big that one would have got in good soil..it took me 20 min.'s to get out the hard pan clay it was encased in.just about like going out and trying to dig a hole in your driveway..33 oz. today... ...

Chief,

Glad you are still able to find some, and some nice ones too.

After my last trip - 7 hours and finding only 6 diggers I decided to let em go until next year. Only a very small % of ours still has a top standing at this point.

If I do get out and find a few more I will most likely just transplant them to a good location nearby for seed production.

About the time our seng played out my 9 year old all of a sudden got a BIG interest in hunting. I have been taking him squirrel hunting every chance we get and Sunday dinner I had a good mess of fried young grey squirrel, gravey and mashed potatoes and home made biscuits (Oh Man !!!) and it was one my son killed to boot.

Don't get much better than that !

Now I just got to get him interested in hunting seng.

I do plan on getting him to help me plant some stratified seed in a few more weeks (got 2 lbs of seed ordered for delivery at end of September).

Hope you keep on finding em !
