If the price does not go up we will just have to put the roots away for another time thats the one good thing about Ginseng it keeps unto another time.I would never sell mine for these prices.The way im thinking is if I dig 2 or 3 years before I can sell !! Man what a pay day when it comes
Hmmmmmm cross a fence perhaps there have been 1 or 2 over the years
I to think it will go up but I dont know about skyrocketing,personaly I wish no one would sell their roots at the price their offering rite now and they would have to go up,all anyone is doing by selling now is giving to the system,its a total rip off in my mind and I wouldnt sell a ounce for these prices,but you got people digging for a quick fix,a drink or a pill,around where im from and they have no thought of tomorrow just a everyday thing.Honestly I am glad digging is ending,so the dealers cant buy no more for nothing from all these people selling like this now that they can not dig no more wet to sell for nothing,there is no thinking in selling like that,just nuts if you ask me,but we can not do anything about this.I wish the State of Ky would start chargeing a fair price for a digging license and when they had to pay a little to start out,it would stop the dopeatticks and drunks from wasteing our resourse by selling it for nothing.This may seem harsh,but im completly ohnest in the way I feel about this and Ive seen this happing for two years around me now.

i agree with what your saying people around here have been digging all summer long season doesn't open till september 1st when you sell 2 or 3 pound opening day something is wrong people are having patches stole to this low life's
Billy ,Bow ....i know what you mean ....opening day my buyer bought 80 pound's ...another buyer less than 50 miles from this buy bought 110 pound's opening day...most of that had to be dug before season to get it dry that quick.....I got a couple of guy's [two brothers] around here that draw total disability but I see them in the woods climbing them big hill as good as i do ....I was squirrel hunting and seen them digging....that was the second day of AGU. our season dont start till the first sat. in sept....Bow ,I bow hunt .by you screen name I take it you do too....
