So most of you probably know about how my hubby and I have differences of opinion when it comes to certain things: garbage, fertilizer, roundup, and the million uses of old motor oil.
Today the discussion is motor oil and railroad ties.
I lost the war about railroad ties being treated with creosote rather than using painted wood for my garden beds. Not even pressure-treated landscape timbers are ok here... but he said he didn't want to be rebuilding things all the time. We bought some old railroad ties and I figured maybe I could just line the ties on the inside with something to keep it from leeching into the soil.
So I take a break from working on designing ads all day to see how the beds are progressing (I can't lift this stuff anymore as I have a hurt back) and all looks great... save he is TREATING THE TIES WITH USED MOTOR OIL!!! (no, the EPA doesn't come out here much).
So uh... any ideas what I can line the beds with now? Should I just forget it? I have an old shower curtain I was thinking of using before... now I'm not sure what I can put in that bed safely.
