Ginseng Under The Deck
This healthy ginseng plant and its offspring are growing under my deck. This plant I believe turns 10 years old this year. I found a good spot that produces about 10 years ago and I took a few of those seeds and planted them under my deck. This big plant was the only one to survive and a couple of its seeds produced two young plants under it. Every year I take seeds from this plant and plant them in the woodlots around the house. I have about 30 plants going in other areas now.
By the way, the spot that produced ginseng where I got the original seeds is now a strip mine and the plants lost forever.....
The horizon is your starting point.
