G/L Chieftain hope that you dig well today.I like to see the seng with the glosy look after a rain.What is the name and brand of your g.p.s. sounds like to me it is reasonably priced and does a good job at the same time.

Congrats on a good dig Chieftain and it has realy suprised me the shortness of your alls digging season two years now if you waste any time you just wouldnt get much in.If you where down two weeks like I was that would realy hurt.I guess it just be that your all so much further North and the seng falls so much faster there in that area due to weather climate etc.I know also that the seaon starts 2 weeks later than ours.

Congrats on a good dig Chief! Our seng is pretty much yellow now. A few still green and some just brown or stems. As far as Billy's comment about the season being short... I don't know about your area, but around here the last 2 years it has yellowed sooner than normal I believe because of how dry it's been toward the end of summer. When I was younger I always remember finding an digging until around October 7th- 10th. After about the 10th it has always been pretty much a waste of time around my area. Last year and this year won't even make it till the first of October.
