We have recently suffered herbacide drift on some of our tomato plants - The Romas and the beefsteaks have hardly any damage if at all, but our supersonics have a fair amount on the tops of the plants (so do our pepper plants). My question is this - how will this effect the fruit?
We do not use any fertilizers or chemicals in our garden - we use organic soil/manure and beneficial insects etc. Although I know we can't avoid every environmental toxin like the stuff that may already be in the soil, we do our best. So now will our tomatoes have traces of the herbacide in the fruit or is it just the leaves that are effected? Fortunately we have had a lot of heavy rain so hopefully whatever got on the leaves has been washed off.
I've read up on the web about round-up and how it's not considered very toxic, binds to the soil etc., but I can't seem to find the answer to my particular question. Thanks for any info you have!
