Peas on Spray Painted Trellis

Anonymous added on May 8, 2014 | Answered

Last year I made a trellis out of PVC to grow peas on. Without thinking I spray painted the PVC with outdoor spray paint. After a year the paint still looks intact. If some paint washed off into the soil, is it safe to grow and eat peas or will the soil be contaminated?

Since it's been a year, I would not worry too much about having any residue leach into the soil at this point. The peas and other vegetables should be fine. To err on the side of caution, however, just make sure that you wash them off thoroughly prior to eating.
