Discovery NotesSample #1 was taken at 7:48 am. The soil sample taken was moist and a little clumped with a few pieces of grass and root in it. The sample was taken from about 8 inches deep underneath the grass. The grass in the area was dewy and healthy. The sample was taken near the houses’ septic system (approximately 3 ft below the surface) which is in our dog yard where 8 golden retrievers defecate and urinate frequently.
Naming NotesI chose the name Wesak because of my Asian water monitor that recently passed away. She is incredibly important to me and I miss her dearly. Her name itself represents the vitality of humanity’s aspirations.
