Today I forgot my phone for my dig, so no in situ pics sorry. Wouldn't have been a good day for it anyway since it was trying to rain during the digging.

I dealt with the weather and had some luck though:

I managed to dig up an insulator. First time I've found one hidden completely underground.

it has a glob/swirl of something white and opaque in it. Milk glass?

I know one of these is a marble but the other one....I think it's a marble....

Another local milk bottle. I now have a half pint, pint, and quart from this dairy.

The big glazed marble IS a marble, its a salt glazed ceramic shooter. They sometimes have one or several dark spots on them from where they would have sat on little pin stands while being fired in a kiln. It's 19th century most likely. Nice hunt! :D
