TOPIC: Biggest root yet for me... 2.3 ounces

Biggest root yet for me... 2.3 ounces 3 years 1 month ago #31901

Finally got in the woods today and found my biggest root yet. Weighed in at 2.3 ounces. This plant didn't have a top. I guess the deer had eat it. Found it while digging a three prong right next to it.

I got a little over 9 ounces of roots today. Going to replant some of the smaller ones.

Is that from the hills in NE Mississippi?

Really it's more the east central part of the state about a 130 miles south of the TN state line.

Man that was a nice surprise...

I had that happen once today too... digging one root and found another nice one that did not have a top.

I found several in the 1 oz to 1.3 oz range today. That is good for my area.

That one you found there is a whopper.

Congrats !

It also could have been dormant this year, and you just happened upon it while digging. I've had that happen before to me.
