Field 1

 

Surface:

.... soil has a slightly smooth or velvety feel when moist. Squeezed when dry, it forms a mold that will bear careful handling. The mold formed by squeezing when moist can be handled freely, without breaking. When the moistened soil is squeezed out between thumb and forefinger, it will form a poor ribbon with a dull surface.

The mold formed by squeezing when moist can be handled freely, without breaking. When the moistened soil is squeezed out between thumb and forefinger, it will form a poor ribbon with a dull surface.

Subsurface:

... soil form very hard, massive lumps or clods when dry and are quite plastic and sticky when wet. When the moist soil is squeezed out between thumb and forefinger it crushes with considerable effort and will form a long (2 inch+) ribbon which will support itself. The sandy clay texture may also have a slightly gritty feel when moist.

Subsurface:

.. soil usually breaks into clods or lumps when dry.  When the moist soil is squeezed out between thumb and forefinger, it crushes with some effort. It will form a short (1 inch to 2 inch) well-formed ribbon with a shiny surface which will tend to break or the ribbon will bend downward. The sandy clay loam texture has a slightly gritty feel when moist.
