A similar but different contamination is happening when people use rain water run offs from roofs to water plants. It's okay for scrubs or lawns, but shouldn't be used for food plants.
Donna, I am just wondering what you source for "e-coli INSIDE the leafs" was. I had thought this was impossible.
thank you.

Don, Google has lots of links about this, some from wacko bloggers and some from the FDA and colleges/universities. Here's one based on a press release from Purdue University: Salmonella and E. coli Can Live Inside Plant Tissue : Food Poisoning Law Blog : Food Poisoning Lawyer & Attorney

Be careful. All the fraidy cats will use this as an excuse to destroy all plants for the sake of human safety.

Johnson, go to code "GREEN" and arrest that mother for trying to poison her child with Spinach!

I don't advocate dumping on the ground but we've all leaked some here and there. I mean, we didn't close our valves properly or get the fitting just right before pulling the dump handle... never mind.

I'm certainly not afraid John, just mindful. I fortunately live in an area where we get more rain from the sky than we know what to do with. I understand lots of people are at the other end of the spectrum. The information was only provided to give people choices on how they handle waste water. The decision is up to the individual whether it's for food or non-food items. And this is certainly not a political statement by me.

I was just joking, not intended to be at you. I previously worked with a group of people who would contort that to mean all green things bad. I need to make sure my jokes are a little more obvious, everything always makes sense to my head, and I'm happy it still does even if it's nonsense.

Us too even though we live in an area that isn't as progressive as the PNW. We visited Seattle once and fell in love. It was for work so we didn't really get to do much but the people are just so open and wonderful. When we launch we're going to try not to beeline straight there but if the time of year is right we'll find some kind of excuse.

Here is a followup photo from today April 12th. It would cost tens of thousands of dollars to purchase enough commercial fertilizer to get the entire field looking like this spot.

Or you could put up a sign "FREE DUMP STATION". I'm sure you'd be popular with your neighbors. Raz

You could be taken to court for this suggestion, these folks could use lawnmowers in lieu of haircut saloons.

Years ago, I was visiting my folks who live in the dry part of the state and a very sparsely populated area. My Golden Retriever rolled in stuff, I rinsed it off.

The next day she was sick. Her ears were messed up. I took her to the vet and we figured she had rolled where somebody had emptied their holding tanks and the chemicals were making her break out around and in her ears. She was shaved around the ears, given shots and antibiotics and I got a nice bill.

But, this is the same dog that rolled on a dead porcupine. I pulled all the quills out except for one, and that was another trip to the vet.
