What type of soil do you have where you live? Our land is sort of sandy and when it rains it does not get muddy. As a matter of fact, it becomes even harder when it's wet.

Our soil here is not black in nature, but it still supports all types of plant life. I wonder if plant life would be better if we had your type of soil. Thanks for sharing

Our 10-year-old son would just love to be out there just to dig up earthworms to go fishing or at least have the same type of soil down here for the same purpose. Thanks

muddy feet - different soils react different with the water added or composted substances.  Can be good and can be bad
We have noticed on our 43 acres that it acts kinda like a sponge when it rains. I guess that is good since we rely on ground water from the rain the seeps down. As long as we don't constantly go over a wet area it does not get too bad. You could help your soil by composting all your vegetable trimmings and newspapers shreded and leaves. In time that could loosen up your soil. I know it improves our garden a bit year after year.

Our land is the same when it rains in soaking up the rain which is good for the grass for our animals. Perhaps I should have stated that it gets hard on the road that we travel on to get from the street to our home. The rest of the land is just great. Thanks
