Earth by itself–capitalized or not–usually refers to the soil we walk on. The Earth refers to our home planet.

Examples–“The earth under his feet was red and clay-like in texture.”

“The planet Earth is third from the sun. ” Or: “Geology is the study of the rocks, minerals, and textures that make up the Earth.”
