Those are some nice plants. I wish we were finding plants with berry balls like that. I'm in Ohio and it seems that we're finding some nice plants but they have little or no berries.

Daisy24, I now live in West Central Ohio and there is some seng here and there. Grew up East of Columbus a ways and used to find a lot of seng. Are you N,S,E or West in Ohio. Glad to hear you are finding good seng.

Hey there Four Thousand feet.. I'm down in Nicholas Co...Where are you located ? Cass or Marlinton area ?.. Don't worry I'm a dealer just guessing by the looks of the roots.

Its really early but your section should start around $ 600.00 . I look for a similar year to last for a while but the ending price will depend on the total dig and demand..Just check with me before you sell is all I can ask.

Strong Prong,

Did you ever know Red (sorry but I can't remember his' last name), the Ginseng Dealer from Elkins, who used to buy seng back in the 80's and into the 90's (and probably as far back as the 60's but I did not know him then)? Red moved from Elkins to the sticks (I believe) either close to Coalton or Cassity some time before his wife passed and I lost touch with him shortly thereafter. Red was the most fair Ginseng Dealer I have ever known and I even offered to watch his' place when he needed to visit his wife in the hospital. He had problems with someone watching his' place and when he would leave, they would break in and steal a lot of his' Ginseng that he had bought. Red taught me a lot about drying and storing Ginseng and even told me of areas of where to hunt for it. There are not a lot of folks around like Red! May God Bless him and his wife and may they both rest in peace!
