Field Full of Lead
These photographs originally had captions, but I pushed the wrong button and now they're all gone. We have a field that goes back about 300 feet. It's a beauty. We cleared a bit of it to grow veggies, but then we had the soil tested and discovered enough lead to kill a horse, or at least make him feel pretty darn loopy. We planted sunflowers to remove the lead, but it's not working and the weeds are taking over anyway. We thought about growing veggies in containers, but we can't even do that because the neighbour kids are back there most of the summer smashing the crap out of everything they can swing a stick at. So we've got a beautiful field full of lead and delinquent kids, and there's not much we can do about it. Yeah, it sucks.
