I am soliciting advice with respect to the dangers of pesticides. This time it not those that we consume everyday from the food we buy in supermarkets,but the fruit and vegetables i cultivated in my backyard.
I have planted peach trees in the path of a down flow that come from nearby properties and partly my property. people use all sorts of chemicals to prevent weeds on their lawn and to kill kill the weeds. I have no doubt that when it rains some of these chemicals may be getting traps by my peach trees. Should I test the peaches before I eat them and where?
