Well, I wasn't worried until NOW.

If you’re worried about lead in garden veggies, try to site your garden away from old houses and busy roads, if that’s possible, and consider keeping the soil alkaline and well fertilized. You can also peel off the skins of potatoes and the outer leaves of things like cabbages. Another option would be growing these veggies in a raised bed filled with soil you’ve purchased from elsewhere.

Raised bed makes sense.

I guess no matter what it makes sense to test your soil.

Agreed, I wasn't worried until now.
