Re: Pre-Season Dirt Sifting
I go into my uncles corn field when it is dry like this with a shovel, a trash can, and a standard trapping sifter. A coal shovel might even work better. Anyway I just take off the top few inches of bone dry dirt, plop it into my sifter and then sift directly into the trash can. Stones and what not that doesn't make it through the sifter can be left at the scene. As log as it has been dry and you keep skimming dirt off the top and not real deep it is completely dry enough for wax dirt making. Careful filling a trash can more than half full. Aside from being extremely heavy if you do get it halfway up to your truck bed the handles of the trash cans have a tendency to break off at less than ideal moments.
