I purchased hay from a neighbor that I had unknowingly had been sprayed with Milestone to control Canada thistle. The hay was feed to sheep and then composted for a year and applied to a new garden. Tomatoes are affected the most but can also be seen in potatoes, peas, beans and eggplant. Bean seeds did not even germinate. Sweet corn, squash, pumpkins, brassicas, carrots, lettuce and beets seem unaffected. Question, is it safe to consume those vegetable that seem unaffected and what is the solution for the soil to correct it for next year? Also, does this have any effect on the lamb used for meat and also if the plant material from the garden can be fed to chickens and still be able to use their eggs safely? Thank you!
