In the spring I told my parents that I was planting some onions in my garden. My dad said, "Onions are so cheap to buy. Why don't you grow some high-value specialty crop instead?"
So this autumn, I'm trying my hand at growing American Ginseng. The seeds are from Johnny's Selected Seeds and had been stratified and ready to go. I promptly put them in the ground. We'll see if they come up next year.
