Discovery NotesCollection time: 10:55 am EST
Conditions: partly cloudy, but sunny blue sky, the previous day was warm and rainy.
Soil quality: very soft and moist from the rain, not clay-like or sandy, some organic material present.

Using a small, inside out, ziplock bag as a glove, I collected a handful of lose soil from the ground near a dumpster behind an auto shop near my home. I collected soil from the surface level to about an inch down in the ground. I wanted the freshest sample possible, so I collected the sample as I was leaving to go to the lab. The soil was stored at room temperature for about an hour and half before being prepared for the shaker.
Naming NotesMy grandmother's middle name is Adora and I have always loved this name. She turned 93 years old the same day that Adora was first isolated.
