I dug 3 lbs 1.5 oz of green sang on my "best ever" trip... but I bet there was 500-600 roots in that pile. I can tell you for sure I was worn out after that days digging. Had blisters, busted open on both hands.
You are getting 3 lbs out of 60 roots. That is just hard for me to imagine.
You got it made up there brother.... if you ever come down south here you would really have to work to get that 3 lbs in your bag
Thx tn I'd have to say it's due to the location. And because all if the rain this spring n summer seems like it brings out those old dormant roots. I don't think I've dug this many big roots. Tn 500 roots to make 3 lbs wow that's crazy. My hand would be killing me. Man if I could find that many in a day up here I'd die from being so happy n laughing to much. It usually takes about 80 avg roots to make a lb here. This yr been crazy big taters.
good job hobler, still killing it I see. You must have some really killer virgin territory up there. We had more rain this year as well, and man can you tell the difference. Lots of nice young patches too, plantin lots of berries. Nice harvest, keep it up.
Looks like u guys r still hitting it up really good. Happy to see that I've hung up the old shang bag lots to do before hunting season gets here. Have had to round up this yrs calves for the grass feed calf sale n a couple cows that needed to go.
I had the Amish come n tear down are 100 yr old barn this spring she only had a couple yrs left before she fell down n have been building one in it place. Most of my shang money has funded this project except school closed for my kids. Today I finally got the roof on. Pics to follow have to resize them. Keep digging my friends. Happy hunting to you all.
