I'll tell ya how I do it lol. I have to sleep with a fan just for the noise so I lay em out where it blows on em at night and it usually does the trick in about 5 days. I had some really big roots a few weeks back and I was gettin scared they were gonna rot so I layed them out for a about four days to let the skin dry slow then stuck em in my dehydrater. Worked just fine. They were to big to set the lid down on em so I placed a cup in the middle for a tier and wrapped saran wrap around the outside to close it off.

I've got about 7 oz. dry. That's pretty good for my area. Last year was the most I found, I had 12 oz. total.

Very little this year.

I got to go 3 times, 15.3 oz the first, 11 oz the next and then 3 oz the last.

On that last trip I hunted 3 locations, total of 7 hours and found 6 plants still surviving that could be recognized.

By the 3rd weekend (Sept 3) our ginseng was all but gone from the extreme heat and dry we had in July & August (southern middle TN).

I got enough for me to eat this next year and a little to sell and help cover seed cost.

Thats about it.

Hopefully next year will be MUCH better here !
