OK, so the tops are up, however considering the small size of these plants what I'm going to do is dig up a small test batch. Maybe an ounce, see how long it takes me and calculate a price based on that and let you guys know. Also keep in mind that harvesting these plants is highly unsustainable. They grow really slowly and their root size maxes out at about pea sized. The only reason they are common is because people don't pay much attention to them.
Sorry guys, got too busy to dig up those plants. I test dug a couple, it took way too long (probably thousands of dollars a pound), and quite frankly my time is worth more than that. No fool would pay what I'd charge to do that. If the amount was a few ounces than I could oblige, but pound would decimate the population of Dwarf Ginseng on my property. I'd recommend doing a small test on a few people. Digging dwarf ginseng is extremely time consuming regardless of efficacy.
