TOPIC: You've got to be kidding

You've got to be kidding 7 years 2 months ago #6028

Ok so this is my first season digging ginseng and ive been doing all this research and reading studying lookin at pics of the stuff and so on. well for about the first weeki could find anything I bet i walked 10 miles before i found my first seng and that was after a 40 min drive. Anyway i found probly 2lbs of really nice root but the real kicker is I was setting aon my back steps taking off my shoes when i spotted a giant full grown yellow ginseng plant it had probly
been there for 30 years or more. it had been staring me in the face laughing the whole time any ways i live in the middle of a town of about 33000 is this unusual

Yes, that's pretty unusual. My guess is that somebody had planted that there at sometime in the past.

A couple years ago I asked a friend if I could hunt a hollow down at his Mothers place and he said Yes. I took his Mom some sweet corn and tomatoes and just made sure she knew what my Truck looked like and where I would park and she said there was probably some ginseng up that hollow but she had never seen any.

I found 20 or so nice plants just a few feet into the woods off her back yard and within 4' of her drive way found a real nice 4 prong and several nice 3's.

I am sure there are a lot of folks that have seng growing right near their home that don't know about it.

Most of the folks that hear me talking about seng say \"I have no idea what it looks like\" and that is true of a lot of folks, probably more true today than it was 20-30-40 years ago.

??IOWA,

You can get yourself a youtube account setup and post the video there, then include a link to it (the URL) as text in a post here.

Here is one I did recently and I am just posting the youtube link/url as text here.
