I have a potted of soil profile down to rock at the bottom of a gallon pickle jar... I was hoping to observe the soil after it was placed into the jar and what happened as it dried... it is rich in compost,,, but otherwise regular soil from the garden...
I'm hoping to see new aggregation forming by watching through the glass...

At the top I have grass starting but germination is terrible... and I have yet to get a picture...

It seems there is always too much glare and diffused light turns out too dark for detail,, but I hope to have actual pictures by the time the roots are visible through the glass...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
