I'm farming on top of a forest...

An underground coal mine near me became the focus of paleontologists recently after miners complained about bumping their heads on tree stumps.
A major earthquake 300 million years ago caused the forest to drop below sea level, burying the entire ecosystem in mud almost immediately, Elrick explained. [More]
Cool! This mud is probably why I have so many wets spots.
