A little while back I had a mediocre dig that I didn't post about, but looking back on it, it really wasn't too bad a dig. Dug a Gust. Feist Tabasco competitor bottle from Galveston (there are two versions of these and this version I had never dug intact) out of a big privy (that was otherwise basically empty) and this cool British medicine (Morton's Chok Marafet) in cornflower blue out of an early 1880's trash pit.

Went out on Saturday and dug a bunch of newer shallow trash pits. A bit of a slow day but did dig one of the nicer-looking Galveston hutch sodas (Oleander City), a couple tooled top crowns (including a pretty scarce one), a raised letter Houston Dr. Pepper, a couple of "Deco" Man's Size bottles (always loved those!) and a ton of "dollar bottles" (Bromo's, poisons, etc.). Found a few milks too but they were all damaged...stuff in pits this shallow tends to be damaged as it wasn't well protected.
