The Horse Barn (left) & Dairy Barn are still on campus. I put this shot somewhere near the Natatorium.

My goodness. This post has made me wonder if Indiana has any kind of information about soil. Probably so. The one thing I took from my Master Gardener classes was about the soil. I had never been interested in soil until that class. It is amazing what the earth is made of, the layers and diversity of textures. My tiny garden has sandy soil for the most part yet it has spots of clay too. I am always surprised to see what I dig up. A State Soil...hmmmmm.

Wow. Wisconsinians take their soil pretty seriously. I don't think NYS has a state soil or any dirty songs.

GF — I love the fact that the UW campus still has a fair number of wonderful old buildings, including barns.

Lisa — I have clay and then spots of wonderful soil. Never know what I'm going to find when I dig. But I don't think I'd have ever been interested in the subject without being a gardener.

Jim — Dirty songs! I should have known you would perfectly contextuallize such info!

Jean

Ha, that's great info! It turns out we live on our state soil - it's called Ruston soil. Don't know why it's the state soil though!

I think they get to be the official state soil as the result of a legislative PR campaign.

Holy dirt devil Batman–every state has a state soil! Mine is Honeoye. Mine even comes with a Native American legend about a rattle-snake bitten finger chopped off.

What's your state soil?

Jim — Thanks. So glad you found this site. Honeoye Falls was always one of my favorite place names. So interesting that it's a soil, too.
