Thanks Chris,

Let me ask the dumb question:  By "wild craft", do you mean forage for exisiting plants?  There is a fellow who dabbles in that around here, but I have not as yet actually seen any ginseng on our property.  If you mean plant it out in the woods and leave it alone for seven years or so, that's what I have in mind (I just have to keep that forager out of my woods!)
