Post  Sunsanvil on 5/19/2012, 8:02 pm

We're making our first couple of SFG blocks out of some nice locally sourced 2x8 cedar. I went to get some lag screws to assemble them but then I got to wondering if hot dip galvanized fasteners would leach anything nasty into the garden? The store had 18/8 stainless steel....for literally 5x the cost! Only other options were galvanized nails or zinc coated screws.

Thoughts?

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
