Today's Dig In The Milk Dump

Today was a very nice day so I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and get out for some digging in my good old milk bottle dump. Only two intact slugplate milks were found today. The two milks were a 1936 pint bird cage style Rockland Dairy bottle from Ellicott City, and the other was a cracked 1936 half pint Hilton Farm Dairy bottle from Catonsville.

    I got 4 cream tops also. All from the Fairfield Western Maryland Dairy. The one on the far left has the older style top before the dacro style started being used.

    Thanks for looking Steve. The cream top does look strange compared to the other ones. I will defenetly take the unlisted Balto. druggist next meeting. I have a few others I will need to take that aren't listed as well.

    I went hiking today along a river but only found two bottles. The river has a steep bank about 10 feet high but it is covered in vines and shrubs. I went down a path because I saw broken glass and found a half pint milk bottle and saw another bigger bottle near the river. After barely missing a bath, I got it and called it a day.  I will not try that again without someone to help pull me out of the river. What I found was unusual is the half pint milk was from a local dairy called the Clover Creamery Co and the bigger green bottle was from the Cloverdale Spring Co of Newville Pa.

    The citrate bottles I normally see have the registered style crown top. That one looks unusual.
    The Rockland dairy is nice.

    creeper71. I am Henry's digging buddy and went digging the day before he did but was not able to dig with him. we use a spud bar which is a really heavy pole that you can use to break up the ground with. it was really hard for me to break up the ground even with the spub bar but it warmed up a bit the next day and Henry told me it was pretty easy for him. some times we don't even break up the ground and just dig huge caves, but we know when it gets too dangerous to be in there. i have seen some really wierd ways to break up or soften the ground. theres this one guy who used a flamethrower to heat up the frozen layer.

    our dump doesn't have any bottles in the frozen layer so were okay. if they were i guess we would wait till it thawed out completely.
