Wow, that is a lot of rocks!  I always dig up a few each year, too, and use them as edging. I have encountered only one that I haven't been able to get out myself after a lot of pushing and shoving. That one rock remains in the garden right at the edge of the property line. My neighbor has given up on getting it out and had her garden planted around it. Several I dug this year just crumbled into dust after they dried out. One never knows what will be found when we start digging. 

Thanks for sharing, Chuck.

Here is a picture on one days work of garden clean up. About 800 lbs of rock. Have done this every day  for about two weeks now.

I wasn't able to  rototill rows last year because too many rocks had surfaced.  Tthey just keep coming back, but at least I can rototill rows next year.

Biggest one so far (several years ago)  was a granite rock just over 3ft long, two and a feet half across and just over two feet thick. Took three people to roll it out of its hole.
