I saw this forum earlier, but didn't want to be the first to post. . .  :shock:

I grew up in a very rural area, and I remember when I was a kid, we had to play outside all the time  as long as it wasn't raining.  We ran around in the woods, helped mow the fields on the tractor and plant the gardens. I was the youngest so when I was really little, I always got "rock duty" when we were planting gardens.

It's amazing how fast those rocks grow isn't it Amy?!?  :lol:
By the rude bridge that arched the flood
Their flag to Aprils breeze unfurled
Here once the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard round the world

I usually think of my soil as clay, lightened by rocks.

Back in Missouri, I got so sick of rocks in my garden, I dug it out two feet deep, piled the dirt high, then sifted the rocks out while dumping the dirt back in.  Boy was is sweet to work in after that.  And then we moved.  :roll:

The dirt here is actually really nice, you can dig down a foot without hitting any rocks.   8)  Except, of course, where the garden was put in, :roll: 3/4 of it is that way, the last 1/4 is more gravel then dirt.  :shock:  Time to get the sifter out again . . .

I must be missing out on some fun. Here we can dig down about four feet before the color of the dirt starts changing and not hit a rock. Then you got a pinkish something I don't think it is clay and not quite dirt. Then you might start hitting cleetchy (How do you spell it?) and there are deep pits of that stuff all over the place they dig out for road construction. Then somewhere way down there you hit what we call bedrock. The first actual rock you will see.
