Soil Moisture Report

I got to work outdoors today.  I had a septic investigation in Ramsey, and late in the day another near Hillsboro.  There are still puddles out there, and near Ramsey, there was a water table at about 20 inches.  It was quite  a mess to pull soil from 5 feet deep.  Southeast of Hillsboro, I pulled into the field with the truck.  The soil was still fairly damp, but firm.  One boring had a water table at 30 inches, but the other 2 had none within 5 feet.  Landscape was fairly uniform, so I am had pressed to say why.  There was some machinery moving on the roads, but I did not see anyone attempting field work.
