Question about vegetable gardens
I have an area in my back yard that is perfect for starting a vegetable garden. It is right over the drainfield for my septic system. The area is about 15 feet wide and about 35 feet long. The grass that grows over it is lush and green and grows much faster than the surrounding grasses that are there. The drainfield is about 10-12 inches below ground and I believe that the grass is much more healthy because of the water and nutrients that percolate up to the surface. My question is: is there a health risk of planting over the drainfiled and having the bacteria that is contained in the drainfield get absorbed by the vegetables growing there? Any information would be appreciated.
