3*11*2012 Collecting soil samples


What a gorgeous day today!  Sixty degrees with a warm breeze blowing.  It was a perfect day to gather soil to bring to MSU Extension for a soil test.  The pictures below show Dan going through the process of gathering a sample in the “Dietz” field.

Here you can see Dan digging into the soil.  Although one of the other fields was still frozen about 2” down, this one was not.  Maggie is making sure there’s nothing good to eat in the bag.
