Joy is right.

I have a variety of soil types just on my property. Most of it is pretty gravelly/sandy decomposed granite. Then there are patches of clay.

We get about 25 inches of rainfall a year. Technically, this is "mountain desert", but trees do grow! Well, conifers anyway.

Eastern Washington has a variety of soils, Here I have some nice soil, been farmed and ammended for many years. My grandfather had 40 acres (this is the last 3 acres left) but even on that 40 it was different in diffent corners of the place. Nearby they grow wheat dryland and then other irrigated crops, 7 miles away from our place (at a friends) I think the best crop is "rocks" So be sure if you are buying around here, walk the place as it can really vary and still be on the same farm!
