Hugh, I wish I could have got in these woods earlier this season, the tops on most plants were barely hanging on the root(easy to break off) and alot of them were weak wilted yellow not tall golden umbrellas!
5, I have had a good year considering the dry season.
Your fortunate to have gotten this real good day in with the weather being a monster this year. Really fine job on this group of roots. You'll be lucky to get beyond this week with tops still showing.
As I posted a minute ago, I was pleasantly surprised to find a couple of plants this morning that were still green. I have been scouting over new territory every time I get out. Finding a plant for me is about like some guys finding a 6 prong. It is so difficult to find in my neck of the woods that I do high5s, and waves, and backward flips, and shout loud enough to be heard in Middle Tennessee when I'm able to find a simple little 3 prong.
I hope you get at least a couple more trips in.
Hugh....I wish your seng was better in your area, seems like you have a passion for it. Maybe with help from others like yourself (good stewards) your seng will improve. Alot of seng is already down here, but like every year it will still be hiding in those deep spots for several more weeks.
Tn....good luck on your Thursday trip and have fun and be safe on your vacation:)
