What is the *question* you want to answer from this table of counts?
If it is just to see the density at the combinations of mass and time,
an image() plot might work, and NAs in the table for 0s will give empty
If you want to see whether there is an association between mass and 
time, or how the distributions for different masses change over time,
mosaic() from the vcd package is worth exploring.

Is there a way to make a plot so that it draws a square at the mass/time spot on the graphic if there is a count and leave it empty if it's empty?
