Got out today in the 90 degree heat wave. Luckily with all the heavy Foliage & the lots being like a Jungle with big trees in full bloom we hade some shade to keep some off the Sun off Us. My Usual side kick & digging Partner Tom was AWOL/MIA. Probed a empty lot I've probably probed a few hundred times before in past 6 years. This time I probed closer to back of house where it once stood 100+ years ago. Felt some Crunchy Glass so we started digging. Within first 2 or 3 feet dug out a killer super Rare Schmitts Hutch from Delray now known as Detroit. Pic below. P1010077.jpgP1010078.jpgP1010079.jpg

We dug about another 2 or 3 feet, now we are like 4-5 feet down & only got a couple of broken American Brewing Blobs & some whole slick jars. I stick probe in bottom of floor & my 5 feet probe easily sinks to handle & i don't feel bottom. So we dig like another foot or 2. nothing but white ash, probably been digging threw 3 feet of white ash & looks like another 5 feet of white ash under that? We did pull out a nice American Brewing blob out of wall about 2 or 3 feet below the surface.P1010088.jpgP1010088 - Copy.jpgP1010090.jpg

This hole/Privy seems to be a unusual 10 feet deep. We'll have to try to finish it next weekend. Felt crunch farther down so hopefully some killer bottles waiting for us. LEON.

After Cleaning the dirt out of Schmitts Hutch it's like attic mint. Doesn't even need a tumble. LEON.P1010093.jpgP1010095 - Copy.jpgP1010098.jpg
