TOPIC: Decided I am not selling this year......

Decided I am not selling this year...... 9 years 2 weeks ago #847

Hey folks.... Quick question I have pretty much decided not to sell this year if the prices don't go up. So what do I do with my ginseng. I have been told to freeze it... Any thoughts?

Better check your state law about possesion!!!You don't want to pay a fine for more than your seng is worth!

I still think the price will be satisfactory after Christmas.

chieftain, I don't think that law is right,especially when what I dig is on family owned property.If price does not get better this year I will call the DNR and see if I can get a premit to hold my seng till next season. I hope that can work.Have you ever asked the DNR before for a hold over premit?

Maybe I am just showing my ignorance but how would a buyer know if the ginseng was from the previous year??

Tony I am from Tennessee too and I am not selling for nothing. How are you planning on keeping your ginseng if it does not go higher? Just in a cardboard box or I was told to freeze it. Let me know

I would also like to know about freezing root? Has anybody lost weight by just storing it in a paper bag or box for a year or more? Not sure what to believe on this subject,I would be thankful for feedback!
