Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the garden

Turns out our fertiliser may be contaminated with a very dangerous herbicide.

I’m glad to say that this won’t affect my garden this year, but given that part of my desire to get into growing my own was to avoid such food scares (as well as show the kids where food actually came from and give myself something to do that didn’t involve a computer) this feels pretty serious.

Yet another indication that we simply can’t avoid the industrial entering our lives even on the most micro of levels.
