Time to Take a Breather

Today was the second day for the opening of ginseng harvesting season here in West Virginia, and I thought I would share a little of what I found today. It was a beautiful clear day ... not a cloud in the sky, and a light, cool breeze made it for some ideal walking weather in the ginseng woods.

Here are some photos of the plants I found...

This is a picture of just the plant's leaves:

These are the roots I harvested, after being washed and placed on a paper towel to dry:

Thanks for visiting Conservatives United!
