The guys started a new area of terracing to reclaim some very rocky land with a few scattered bushes and wire grass.
Cory was pleasantly surprised to find most of the rocks are easy to move and a little good soil between the rocks.
There is a patch of red clay, which may be 20 or more feet deep, near the middle of this rocky hill that will be spread on the terraces.
Cory has seen near our house that this clay apparently can turn into good dark topsoil.
