RECENTLY ON TOL:

I want to stress the importance of testing your soil for lead from paint scrapings of sanding, if you want to grow vegetables near an older house.
My daughter wanted to grow food next to our house. I insisted that she have it tested. We got the results yesterday and, unfortunately, the lead level is more than three times the recommended safe level
I guess we'll put in shrubs or ornamental plants.
Coincidentally, today's Oregonian has an article about mitigating lead contamination.
