If it's slimy, chances are clay. Add sand?
Personally, Ulrik, I would lose the dirt.
I live in Florida, and stop calling me Love Canal.
That may be. Yesterday I did some gardening, pulled out weeds, sowed, ecc. My hands were full of dirt too. ... It must have something to do with the ground, I only don't know what. And today I'll use gloves. Anna

Sound quite a bit like my dirt, just more extreme. I have earthworms here (my sav loves them BTW), but not that many. And I have noticed that if I dig too deep, the dirt's color changes to lighter brown, it looks quite like clay.
Heck, seems like I've actually dehydrated my sav, instead of kept him hydrated, by using this soil. :-/
I'll try to remove it from his basking spot too.

If the soil used does this, try cutting it with peat moss. Chad

"Cutting" it with peat moss ?
Were you a cocaine dealer before becoming an engineer ; 0 Seriously though, I hate it when
somebody steps on my topsoil,
sometimes its 60, 70% peat moss,
hows the little guy supposed to make
a profit ?

Interesting story, Roger! That's exactly how I lost that FIRST finger.

I keep looking to lose one any day myself, Pete..lol. Actually the way I feed him is a lot safer than it sounds. Of course, my wife plays decoy a lotta times..lol.
Also, you asked how to add parts of messages to your replies on WEBTV. I replied several times, but you must have missed them. Copy and paste the part you want to add into your reply. Then put > in front of each line you have. Make a space after each line using the return key, and there you have the added message snip in smaller text when it is posted.
Still got that 2 foot Retic???

Ulerk, sounds like salt in the dirt.

Uh, no, it doesn't. With the exception of northern Jutland, Denmark has no significant amounts of sodium chloride in their soil.

Denmark does have vast amounts of Limestone and clay, which are very desiccating.

Yeah, my impression was the soil may be alkaline and pretty reactive. Soil pH tests are also hard to do over the internet.

"Cutting" something into your mix is also a cooking term, a painting term, a chemical fabrications term... not just for drug dealers. Emotion: smile
