Re: Re:Contaminated soil.......
Interesting - now we will begin to build a body of
folk-data about what plants will grow in contaminated
soil - along the same lines as to what weeds growing
in a field tell about the nutrients in that soil (or
lack of nutrients). We already have some
folk-evidence that point towards plants that are
effacious on certain contaminants - it's a shame that
we'll need to build this body of information, but I
believe we, those who till the land, will HAVE to be
the ones to do it.
I'll put it on my calendar for Wednesday next. You?

A garden, where one may enter in and forget the whole world,
cannot be made in a week, nor a month, nor a year; it must
be planned for, waited for and loved into being.
