Safety in soil choice
We have had a septic drain field overflow fixed and my husband wants to use that soil in a raised vegetable garden bed. I say it is not safe because of the standing septic water, he says it is safe and good soil. Please help. I'm sure e-coli would be the least of the issues! Thanks!
