Good to hear from you Billy.

I have been wondering about you too... figured you were just extra busy.

I wanted to give you and (those here a update on the root you sent me with a 5 prong top).

The first year it came up a 5 prong, but each year since then it came up a nice 4.

I guess it just needs some Mountain soil and sunshine to reach it's full potential.

It was a real beauty this year.. but the location it was in is quite a ways from my house so I don't get to check on it all that often.

It was a big stout 4 and had a nice wad of berries and I planted every one of them.

Some property down near the area that I had it planted changed hands this year (new owner) and that had me a little worried about it being safe down there where I could not keep an eye on it. So this fall after planting the red berries, I carefully dug it up, and transplanted it to my seed producing bed. It will be right next to that big 4 in the front next year (the one that always has the extra tall berry stem). Now there should be 2 there with extra tall berry stems next year.

Below is a pic of the root that I got as I was getting ready to replant it.

I believe it has grown some the past 3 years.

PS... as always great looking seng you guys are finding. That was a nice long neck there that your brother found.

Thanks guys for all of the comments. I am glad to come over and share a few photos of the season. TNhunter thanks for sharing the information on the 5 prong top. That is neat how it has done. I think the soil is fine as I to am sure that it has gained size. I used to wonder often if a 5 prong would remain a 5 prong and so forth and I have now learned from this top and 2 others that they can change from year to year.

September 5th

Me and my oldest Son L. Bill comes into the best dig of our lives. I never thought that there was a wild patch as this one any more. Older people who have gone now told me of such mature patches, but to find one in this day and time was a most welcome blessing.

The patch held 13 1/2 pounds and all of these where mature 3 prongs and 4 prongs with a few rare plants like a double top a 5 prong and a double berry pod.

If we had dug the smaller three prongs (we didn't) and bigger 2 prongs (we didn't) I am sure the patch held 15+ pounds in an area no bigger than 3 school buses sitting side by side. The one thing that surprised me is the largest root was just under 6 ounces. I would have thought to find a 10+ oz root in there.

Thanks to the Lord for this. I never expect to see that again, but I am sure thankful for the time that I did see it.

Billy.
