"You should plant trees in the spring or fall," says Virginia.
Yes, maybe. Anyway, I lifted a shovel of dirt and dropped it onto the pile I would later return to the hole, and a tiny stone caught my eye.
"How do you know which was front and back?" asks Virginia.
Picky, picky. What do you think happened a few thousand years ago when this arrowhead dropped to the ground? Squirrel, rabbit, bird? Maybe not. I understand even projectile points of less than an inch could drop a deer (http://archaeology.about.com/cs/lithics/a/thepoint.htm).
The stone may be worth 87 cents. The experience is not.
