Concerned about my soil
I am finding various items in my garden soil that cause me concern about contamination. A glass shard, crushed Coke can, pieces of plastic, and metal wiring are among the foreign items I found last summer. I'm not sure if it came from the topsoil or the mushroom compost that our landscaper used to fill in the bed. My plan is to remove the soil and put in new. I cannot locate certified organic soil in our area, but I have found places that offer screened topsoil.
Does anyone have a recommendation on how far down to dig to remove the current soil? I have small children, and we eat a mostly veggie diet, so I want to make sure it is completely safe.
Any thoughts about purchasing screened topsoil?
Anyone used sweet peet to amend the soil? I don't have a compost pile yet so I am probably going to need something.
