Rubi, for the sake of one extra season, don't grow veg there this year. They will grow and look fine but the possibility of any weedkiller residues in your food is enough to be wary.
same with the compost heap.......i would not add the first couple of mowings.
If your ornamemtal crops do well there this summer you can have more confidence that edible crops will be safe next year. we grow our own food so we don't have to eat the sprayed food from the supermarkets. In summer, at least, my salads are healthy and chemical free. And, boy, don't I feel better for it
