Fact of the day (inspired by being covered in mud for 10 hours):

Turns out, birds and flowers don’t have all the fun. The Green Mountain State (and every other state) has a state soil. Ours is “Tunbridge”. My home state of Pennsylvania touts “Hazleton” and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts claims “Paxton fine sandy loam”. New Jersey is “Downer”. They never catch a break.

For the dirt on your favorite state:
