Ginseng Pictures 2006

Had to mow the yard today when I got off work so I didn't have time to go digging. Probably won't get to go again until Saturday when I'll spend half the day in the woods.

Anyway here is a picture of most of the ginseng I dug last year after it was dried. The biggest root (highlighted) was a lucky find. It was growing in an area that some kind of woodland grass was growing in. The grass was thick and over knee high. If it wasn't for the large cluster of red berries I would have walked right by it. All of the leaves and most of the prongs were missing (probably eaten by a deer).

More pics to come soon.

Happy Digging.
