Hello, I'm new. I just bought a foreclosed on house thanks to my Grandparents offering me a mortgage. I want to start my first ever garden and I wanted to make organic vegetables. I'm trying to get the toxins out of my life because I recently got an autoimmune disease that's now in remission but I want to be careful to make sure it doesn't come back.
So there is this awesome south facing stone wall next to my driveway and it was overgrown with weeds, but I wanted to plant my fall garden there. But then my Grandma said that she saw poison ivy and she sprayed it with 2, 4-D without my permission or knowledge. She told me she did it after the fact. So I look it up online to see how bad it is and it says "2,4-D has also been accused of being responsible for non-HodgkinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s lymphoma, endocrine disruption, reproductive and developmental effects, as well as water contamination and toxicity to aquatic organisms."
So now I'm really upset she did this, especially because she knew that I wanted to go organic. So, it was just one spot towards the end that she sprayed, the poison ivy wasn't all over. Do you think that I should put my garden someplace else and how long should I wait before planting there?
Thanks for your advice.
