Lead in house paint?
I want to plant some zucchini, and sweet potatoes in a bed under my dining room window. The exterior paint is peeling on my 100+ year old house, and I am sure some of the a paint chips have fallen in the bed. I have no idea how old some of the chips might be, because there probably has been paint on paint through the years. I don't want to spend a lot of money to find out, and it is getting late in the season to wait for test results to come back. Does anyone know if exterior paint contained lead in by gone years, and should I be concerned?
