About as Muddy as it Can Get!


Dallas County is about as muddy as it can get! The Blackland Prairie soil is super-saturated with more rain expected by mid-week.

Great texture in your photo! Thanks for stopping by today and leaving a comment. Happy New Year!

Notaphotographerbut...This soil is a heavy clay, so it sticks to everything when it's wet. When it's dry, it cracks right open! However, it makes pretty good pasture and foundation for catfish ponds.

What sort of pasture plants grow in the clay? Is the material appropriate for pottery too?

Rambling Round said...

Z, tall fescue and dallisgrass are a couple of the grasses used in pastures, and johnsongrass is commonly used for hay. I am not sure about the use of its clays for pottery, but there is pottery made from Alabama clay, especially red clay. I'll check on that!

super textures photographically but I wouldn't like to try traversing it - almost as bad as the snow we've got here.
