Gardening With Toxic Waste & A Request

I love this list. We get certain perpetual questions from nice people who 
sorta think that what they want to do/have done in the garden may be 
dangerous/not-best-practice/"iffy", but they want someone on the list to validate it. 

And then we all write all of these impassioned e-mails about how gardening 
with dog and cat feces, used tires, depleted uranium artillery shells or a 
variety of Miracle Grow isn't really the best thing to do. 

While these, "Please don't run with scissors, Johnny," messages are 
necessary, I do do wish gardeners on this list would WRITE MORE about the community 
gardens in their areas/

Trust me, all of us want to hear about what you've learned over the last 
year, the problems and issues you've  dealt with, your plantings, what your 
gardeners and community is like, who you've fed from your garden, and what it's like 
gardening in, let's say, Hot Coffee, Missisippi ( a real place, by the way) 
and the cycles of the years, and how the sky looks overhead, and how the warm 
earth feels under one's bare feet. 

Yes, we do have to tell Johnny not to run with scissors - that is part of 
this listserv's mission, but we also have to share our experiences, to talk over 
the many garden fences during this winter season - to help all of us thinking 
green and warm during this winter time - at the very least, a good thing to 
read amidst the bad news from abroad and the 40 million dollar victory lap of 
the January 20th re-Inauguration.
