Can Food In My Garden Get Contaminated?

Recommended Posts

I have a plot in a community garden.  Today I inquired about the tall grass-like plants in my neighbor's plot: rye, I was told.

 

My first reaction is to wonder whether my regular rinsing is enough for lettuce.  Is there anything in truth to be concerned about with cereal grains swaying over my plot in the breeze?  Or when they harvest?

I am about as cautous as they come and I would simply rinse the lettuce really well.  If you think about it we have no way of knowing what is growing in fields next to the produce we buy in a store. I wash every produce I buy even stuff that I don't eat the skins of like bananas not just for gluten concerns but because I don't know who handled it before me.
