Here is the soil view from the area where my soil sample was taken before shoveling it into the jar and shaking it with water. It was snowing. Stumps pushed up by bulldozer in preparation for building a new house. It was an old vacant lot, not mowed for years. Not as woodsy as it appears. There is a new house 100 feet to the left and a 15 yr old house 100 feet to the right. Very sandy and flat in my neighborhood, perhaps 75 percent sand as you estimated, Axe. Water table is high--shallow wells can sometimes be only 12 feet deep. We have clay hills to the north of us in the fruit growing region.
