TOPIC: A poll - - - How much seed have you planted ?

A poll - - - How much seed have you planted ? 6 years 1 month ago #14873

Thought it might be interesting to do a Poll and see just how much seed some of you guys have planted (lifetime), how much you have planted this year, when you started planting.

If you don't mind sharing - answer the questions below.

I will state them and then provide my answer and you can do the same if you don't mind. If you can think of other questions to add - feel free.

PS - I probably planted my first wild seng berry in 1976 or so and have planted thousands of them over the years, but not counting that in this poll.

Thanks

Totals so far...

6 - TNhunter
12 - Hugh
360 - Guy
60 - Rootman
=============
438 lbs of seed.

Kduce took the 5th on us on total pounds planted :-(

438 x 7000 = 3,066,000 seeds - WOW !

PS - I have another pound ordered that should be here by Tuesday next week and I have Thursday/Friday off from work - hope to get all of that in the ground late next week.

That will get me up to 3 lbs this year, 7 lbs total.

I may try to work in 1 more pound after that, which would put my totals at 4 this years, 8 lifetime.

Kduce on your questions:

4 - I plead the 5th also
5 - That would be just after I dig them (patience required) 9 or 10 years.


Thanks
