    Sounds like old stacks of square bales, that rotted down. Bales stacked criss crossed, explains the "grids"..??

    Sounds like an excavation grid for an ancient burial grounds.

    Now I'm wishing that I had taken some pictures! Not wire, not mesh, but red plastic baling twine. Yards and yards of the stuff. I filled two large trash bags, have another bag to fill. Some pieces are over 50' in length.

    Sounds like a job for a Ratchet Rake.

    Yes, a Ratchet Rake sure would've been handy! We used a hand rake, gloves, scissors, a Husqvarna trimmer and a push mower. Slow going, but I think we have gotten rid of all that baling twine.

    This sounds to be the most logical. Could have been many years back.

    Would square bales have baling twine over 30' in length, up to 50'?
