You know, I was thinking about this the other day while winding up my drip
hoses for the winter...had never thought of it before but I'm using the
drip hose made of recycled tires.  Years ago we used to grow tomatoes in
old tires for the extra warmth, but I stopped because I had questions
about just would be leached into the soil from the old tire.  Now my
question is...just what Is leached out of those drip hoses?  Is this
adressed in the organic rule.
