Linda, your ground grows more rocks than mine does.  It looks as though you are going to have to import some soil.  That stuff is hard on tools, but if you have time and a strong back you could build a rock fence.

Here we didn’t get a drop of rain in September or October.  Fortunately we get irrigation.  I have seedlings to line out, but it’s still too muddy from being watered a week ago.  At least the temperature, at last, has fallen below 90 degrees.  I can work outside and still feel good..

My infamous "soil". One result of all the trees coming down in the
microburst this spring was the decision to bury the electric line to the
pumphouse. I thought I'd just use all that nice loose dirt as a
short-term place to line out a few seedlings.

Trouble is, by the time I get most of the big rocks out of the top foot
or so of this freshly dug "soil", it will probably be a foot deep
trench! But I guess I can always fill it with horse manure and potting mix.
