We hoped to start up a vegetable garden in the big field behind our house this year (2009). Then we discovered the lead content in the soil is 460ppm, which is at least twice the amount considered safe for growing vegetables. We might plant some sunflowers in the field; sunflowers supposedly remove lead from soil. But what we really need is a backhoe, a bulldozer and 20 dump truck loads of composted soil.
