I have always remembered my Soil Science class with Larry Meyers: “Soils are different, soils are beautiful!” as he used to say! To this day, I can’t bring myself to walk on the grass when it’s wet – that’s when the soil is most vulnerable to our trampling feet increasing the particle density. That class definitely left a mark on me. Larry was a GREAT teacher!
