Well Frank,
I hate that, even though I've always wondered what it would look like to see someone planting ginseng seeds in the snow. :laugh: I'm still at it myself with the rootlets. I believe that another day or two here at the house will finish my work in my lots. I'll still have several hundred babies to find spots for in the mountains.

I had a pleasant surprise yesterday while I was planting rootlets and the thread that TNhunter made about root sizes from his seed bed just went right along with what I found that I was very pleased with.
I have never dug any roots from the plantings that I have been doing from 6 years ago so I did not know how well they were sizing even though many of the three prong tops were getting quite large. While digging next to the older ones I accidently dug up a 5 year old plant that was in a row. I could not believe how large the root was. It was a big 3 pronged root, and chunky to boot with lots of hair roots. This was very much a saleable size root and I was tickled to see just how well the plants were sizing. I sure hope they continue to do well like this one has. After having some bad luck with germination from two different plantings it was good to see some positive results.

Welcome to the forum, DannyDarnell!

Getting the seeds into the ground before the snow is good. I'm betting that it'll melt soon, and allow you to get some more of those seeds in --if you need to.
