    As I dug I found tons of those rocks, very carefully sorted them out thinking I was saving bucks...............yeah right, just making dirt.

    I have hauled about another ton of rock the last two weeks. I redid the garden area and needed it for a pathway. Every year I say that I am finished hauling rock yet somehow I always end up with at least another truck load of them.

    lol next time we go up to penna, we will be hauling a load of rocks back. I need to replace the mush rock I put around the stock tank. I knew it would disappear into dirt, but needed something on a temp basis. After this winter most of it disappeared.

    Hubby and I were just saying if we ever sell our house, the buyer better like rocks, because the house comes with over 10 tons of them LOL

    Anyone know what that alien looking design is on the second one?

    Check out these weird rocks we found on our property a few weekends ago. DSCN5198.JPG DSCN5196.JPG

    I know the area where the property is was at a time an ancient forest (lots of petrified wood) and a there are a lot of dinosaur digs in the area.

    Probably the remaind of ancient vegetation. I've seen similar patterns in coal, which is simply compressed, petrified leaves and such.
