Guys I ended up keeping the wish for 2 pounds on my 2 day spree :) tonight instead of showing my pile or the biggest root I want to share some realy old and nice roots with you guys check out these long necks just amazing to me how strong and determined wild ginseng truly is and as Tn I use wild ginseng I use it for my Arthritus I have it bad and ginseng helps me better than medicine.Well this is the size and kind that I keep and use myself as well I had rather have the small bulby old roots than the big old roots,Billy.

Root three and my favorite of the day is a long neck bulb that root has been through it you can tell it has endured hard times by looking at it priceless if you ask me but this world never seems to reconise true value.

Total for the 2 days 40 ounces :) woot woot............;)

Billy...

As a mother of two daughters,(18)&(12)both nature lovers- it does my heart good to read your post's and see how you are sharing with and teaching the younger generation. I've been trying to get my 12 year old to go with me this year, I know she would love it! Last year was my first year at it and I was \"hooked\"...I went so hard at it- I ended up having knee surgery in the spring. Needless to say ...I've paced myself this year. But I still see it when I close my eyes at night!
Didn't mean to ramble....just want all of you to know that reading your post's and seeing Christian like fellowship has been a blessing to me....
Thanks all.....:)

Jane I know what you are going through, when I first started years ago I would close my eyes to sleep and see beautiful 3 prong plants!! Hard to sleep when there's seng to dig.;) Good luck with th girls, I have taken mine to gather cohosh, star root,ginseng and a few others. They are now 18 and 23 and have other things on their minds but I and they still have the memories.

Good job Caleb!!
