Can I plant a vegetable garden where I just removed poison ivy?
I just cleared a small patch of land next to the rear line of my property so I could use it as a vegetable garden. Lo and behold I discovered the hard way the roots I was pulling out were poison ivy. I believe I've gotten as close to all of the roots out of the soil as is possible in one pass but I'm not sure if the poison ivy will affect the plants or if the oils will somehow transfer to them as they grow. I really don't think my kids would enjoy ingesting urushiol-laced carrots and such. Can I plant without worry or is there something I need to do first or wait til next year or should I find a new spot for the garden? Or perhaps something entirely else I haven't considered?
