I shudder

Response to interesting solutions


to think of what all is in the soil after the flood of '05. With all the thousands of flooded vehicles, engine oil, transmission fluid, gear grease, power steering fluid, brake fluid, coolant, diesel fuel, gasoline, etc.
Don't think I would plant a food garden without scraping off at least the top 6 inches and replacing the soil.
A lot of NOLa is built on landfills and who knows what was dumped years ago and floated up in the flood.
