How close to Well can I plant veggies, etc.?
We're moving (from Florida) to a lakefront cabin that we recently purchased in NE Washington. I've got a LOT to learn!!! Everything will be so different from what I'm used to...the weather, the plants, etc. etc. Also...we'll have a well and (engineered) septic system which I've never had before. I'm wondering how close to both I can plant. I'd been planning on putting in my veggie garden fairly close to the well but I'm wondering if fertilizing would leach into well water. I haven't used much pesticides here in Florida but don't know what I might do in Washington so that is another consideration.
I've been planning ornamentals and wildflowers near the septic but am not sure whether I can plant on top of it or how close to it?
I'd appreciate ANY comments or suggestions. Thanks!
