Well I think my garden season is about over now, back in July we had a company called Tribar a manufacturing company spill or dump 1,000's of gallons of chromium into the sewer system here in wixom. This company was caught dumping another toxic chemicals into the sewers a few years ago and then it passed through the Milford water treatment plant. Well needless to say my garden is only a half mile from this company and the wetlands that I water from go right up to the back of this company. So to make a long story short my family will not eat anything from my garden this year untill I can get the water tested for toxic chemicals so I pretty much abandoned my garden since the end of July. The tomatoes that I am picking to weight were tomatoes that were already on the plants when all this started last month. Since then a ground hog has moved into my garden and is digging tunnels in it. So now my garden is turning into a disaster now.
