Please tell me I didn't ruin my garden!!

I am such an idiot! I have been fighting grass and weeds in my garden, more of them than vegetables! So I got the roundup concentrate plus out, mixed and sprayed some of the weeds. Do you think I ruined it? I had read the package and it said to cover them from overspray so not to kill them, but then I read DO NOT USE in vegetable gardens, right there on the front! DUMB DUMB! So what does anyone think?

It depends on why it said "do not use on veggie garden", does it mean poisonous to eat or does it mean it'll kill your veggies? If there is an 800# on the bottle I'd call to find out.

If you didn't hit the plants with spray, you'll be fine. If you did hit the plants with spray, you'll know it, they'll likely show it within a week.

Don't forget 'roundup ready' corn, soy, canola, and so on, brought to you by your friends at Monsanto, made to be sprayed.
