Maybe what I call "dirt" ain't your old out in the back yard dirt. What I am using is really stone, crushed into powder. You couldn't grow plants in this, it isn't soil but rock. I look at areas where there are gravel roads and driveways and get the "raw material" from there. The almost black dirt that is in my yard isn't suitable for what I want...too dark and it does become mud when wet. The stone resembles mud when wet but when dry it looks totally different. It pays to look for the un-obvious while walking around the neighborhood. The biggest problem I have with "material collection" is the neighbors looking at me sideways while I scrape up supplies from the street and alley. But then they know that I am crazee and build model trains.
