I bought a house and the previous owner left Weed&Feed containers in the basement, so I know the lawn was treated. It has been a year and I want to plant vegetables but do not want to eat herbicide.
What should I do to prepare safe-enough beds? If I need to bring in clean soil, where do you get soil you can trust?
Also, the garden needs to be on a slope, ideally, because that's where the sun is.
I am heartbroken after reading about the dangers of composting with treated grass. I already put clippings in a raised bed intended for vegetables, with oak leaves. Should I throw that out?
If I just wait 2 years, will it be relatively safe? Three years? I don't expect perfection. Better than what I am currently eating ("organic" from Kroger) is good enough. Thank you!
