Wild Ginger

Wild Ginger is everywhere down in the hollow.  It's usually found along the sides of the ridges and back up in the draws.  I just started foraging for it after giving it many months break.  The taste is somewhat different than the regular stuff.  It has more of a clove and medicinal taste.  Yesterday I harvested 70 roots for a restaurant.  I'll be delivering them tomorrow along with a ton of Skunkyo Semi-Long Radishes and a paltry amount of Purple Mizuna.  The Purple Mizuna is a whole nother post.

Below is one of the areas where I was digging the ginger plants up at.
