Beautiful roots Maya...

I am always amazed at how long the roots you find are and then long fine roots at the end and you get them all out.

No doubt it takes some patience and careful digging to get those.

Roots like that, with that kind of age should fetch a nice price in the end.

This is a prime example of how to take one's time to carefully and respectfully dig ginseng root.
Job well done.
The next challenge will be to dry, pack and transport to market with the least amount of breakage.

Still waiting! :whistle: :whistle: ;)

Thanks Herbuyer. My normal buyer comes right to the house and handles it. I always get top dollar, or so I thought!

Nice batch, nice find!

I can identify with the getting old part. I never thought twice about bouncing around the woods when I was younger... Not 40 anymore....

Most of my problems are from a ton of broken bones in my back, but ya getting old sucks! Just turned 50 but feel like I'm 80 sometimes.

Dang Maya, those are awesome roots!!!
I can't believe how old those are too in that one pic with the long necks. You count the age on those yet?

These are all right around 40, one is 46.

I can't suggest to some of you strongly enough. Take your time,dig them right and let them get some age. I always read everyone's posts, look at your pics and see the prices. On average I normally get $150-200 more per pound than most. Just some food for thought.
