I hate that, even though I've always wondered what it would look like to see someone planting ginseng seeds in the snow. 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.
