TOPIC: Things are coming to a critical point

Things are coming to a critical point 2 years 3 months ago #36475

The season has progressed to the point now that most of the berries on my plantings in the mountains are ripe and showing like a neon light. I have been making trips to these patches and as the berries turn red I have been planting them. It has progressed so far that I felt like they were just too big of a target for poachers. I took the camera, my pruning shears, and a walking staff to dig a slight trench with so I could plant the berries. These plants are 4 years old and I have been real pleased with the berry production this season.

As I mentioned before, this is the third time I have gone through them and planted.
I also wanted to show Maya just what it looks like and how deep we plant these berries. Today, I was using a tobacco stick to cut a small trench with and when the berries are placed in it they might be an inch deep.

This is rich dark soil and it has worked well. There is lots of Black Cohosh growing in the area so the ginseng fits nicely.

I believe after seeing just how well the plants have produced berries I can say that they have done better than my patches at the house.

As soon as I removed the berries and planted them I cut the tops out and hid them. Hopefully they are now safe until next year.

There is nothing prettier in ginseng than those beautiful red berries.

It just seemed like they have kept on producing and producing.

Big fat, plump red berries makes my day.

This was only a start on this patch and I'll need another couple of days to get it finished. I'll feel better when everything is out of sight.

Those are some nice berries, and I dont blame you, them berries are like a beacon in the dark and can catch the most novice sang hunter. I was in my woods today and picked a few berries but here in north central Indiana all the berries are not ripe yet, and in my particular area I dont have to worry as much about poachers. Good luck with your berries and hope you get them all
