    Was out checking some of my Game cams and stumbled upon some Wild Ginseng.. seen about 20 plants in that area..got some pictures of it yesterday.. Didn't pick it and I plan on leaving it be..

    However i did pick some of the red berries on it and planted it in and around the other plants there..

    Here the picks for those who have never seen what Wild Ginseng looks like..
