Discovery NotesThe soil was collected at 12:30 pm.
The soil was taken from a rose garden outside of 603 Unit #1 in Crimson Court Townhouses. It was taken from the right, front corner near the sidewalk/door. The sample was dug out with a plastic spoon and placed into a Ziploc bag. The weather was sunny, partly cloudy, and humid at 84 degrees Fahrenheit. It was very moist, it had a deep brown color, it stuck together for the most part but had a tendency in some areas to crumble. There were worms found in the sample and it had stems and leaves found throughout. The soil was cool to the touch.
Naming NotesIt was the first name we could discover that was not taken.
