I did the same thing. Saw a little point of a rock coming out. Grabbed a shovel. Then this....

Dragging it out with the Accord didn't go so well. Borrowing the neighbor kids did :lol:

Did you consider breaking it up? I was digging footings for a deck an kept running into large rocks, not that big , but big enough to be a huge PITA when at the bottom of a 3 ft hole. After 30 min of frustrating prying and digging I just hit it as hard as I could with the point end of my digging bar and low and behold It broke in two pretty easily. After that I was smashing every rock I found.
