Maybe exercise caution though, if children start coming out of it.

Might be a problem if too many bad people were wished to the cornfield by this boy:

If it gets too hot, the corn might start popping on the stalk.

I lived for 8 years in a small housing development built on land that had once been a tomato farm in the Central Valley of CA. The soil was amazing. I'll never have a vegetable garden that productive again!

Test the well, which you should do on any well purchase, anyway.
They are saying it's public water.

How does that work then, when it's public vs well?

Can former corn fields effect the public water somehow if moving to an area with tons of former farms?

thank you!

Here in central MD most developments used to be corn fields or cow pastures. Problem is a lack of decent trees for the first 30 years. Advantage is no 17 year Cicadas since they drop into the soil from trees.


Actually one of the worst problems around here was a golf course that was developed a couple years ago. The developer was required to strip all the topsoil off and pile it up because of the over fertilization over the 60+ years it was a gold course. The topsoil has to be allowed to leach out the chemicals for several years then they can take samples and remove a certain percentage off the surface for use and begin the cycle of testing over again. Supposedly it will take at least 40 years before all the soil is re-used.

A very large part of the Phoenix metropolitan area was farmland in 1972 when I got here. Since then most of that farmland has been developed with no water problems or land problems.

Nothing to lose sleep over.
