  • in reply to: Are railroad ties SAFE for gardens? #174245

    Old railroad ties are often loaded with PCB’s. That’s why they smell bad. PCB’s were banned int the 80’s (?) because of links to cancer. I don’t know how readily they leach into the soil, but I wouldn’t be comfortable using them for a vegetable garden.
