Hey Billy..

I am off in Gulf Shores AL for a family vacation this week. Staying thru to this Saturday and then heading back to TN.

I have looked and NOT found a single bunch of seng growing down here in this white sand :lol:

The same Lord that created the Mountains of KY and hills and hollows of TN, with hillsides covered in fern and seng created these white sand beaches and the bueatiful sunsets. Got to appreciate it all...

I will be back to TN on Oct 15... not sure if there will be any seng left standing at that point but I will just have to get out and see if I can find a few more.

That was a real bueaty of a 4 that Caleb found. I like em when the leaves are big and full and rounded like that. That is one he can be proud of for sure.

You also showed some really nice eaters - love those long necks with smaller bulby roots.

I brought a real nice one with me down here on vacation - very similar to the \"root 2\" pic that you posted. It is a really stout root, med wise, lots of good ole stout seng flavor. Had some in my coffee this morning.

Keep those pics coming buddy.

Hope you all find a big pile yet.

No matter how careful you are or how hard you try sometimes a root breaks on you -- bottom right :(

Sure looks like a fun day in the mountains. Congrats on finding a nice 5prong plant. It's been a good while since I've seen one. Wish you'd have taken a pic. I was into a patch of old seng earlier this year that had big old 4's everywhere and thought for sure that I'd find an old 5prong somewhere on that hillside, but no such luck. Ours is pretty much done here. The leaves from the trees are covering it up fast. Most were gone anyways, but I did see one the other night that still had some green to it and a few red berries:)

Trying to get into deer hunting mode now, but haven't had much free time at all. Tell Caleb I said hi. When you get freed up some evening give me a holler.
