Shroomy, I know what you mean. If this were a year that I was digging this area it definately would have gotten dug. But I knew going in tonight that I wasn't digging. Our season doesn't come in until Sept. 1. Besides, I really like digging those 25+ year old roots, and if you dig all the 15 year old plants you'll never get those old boys.
Well guys, went back out today to plant berries and pinch off some more. Had a light rain this afternoon so I hope that will have a positive effect on all the berries I planted today. I even pinched off several 4-prongs today most of them were younger 4-prongs but fours none the less. I also found a pretty neat 2-prong that had 6 leaflets on one of its prongs. I don't ever recall seeing one like this before. I also walked up this very narrow but steep point and found a few 3-prongs even though I have walked up it many times before in the past and have never seen any seng growing on it before this year. The stuff simply amazes me. I'm really starting to get the itch to dig. I still have a little over a week and am planning to spend the first day exploring a brand new area. Sometimes that strategy is a total bust, but when it pays off it is extrordinary to me. Either way it's always a fun adventure. Hope you guys enjoy the pics
