Hello, I am new to this board. I am so glad I found this website. I am hoping you can answer this question for me. My community has a community garden. You can rent a 20" X 20" space for a few dollars each season. I was hoping to plant vegetables there. But the problem is that this garden is directly under power lines. Huge ones from the electiric company to feed our community electricity. Is this good for the food or not. The reason why I am asking is that I had read somewhere that living around power lines is not healthy. I am wondering if it is the same for vegetables. I would appreaciate any ideas on this. Thanks so much in advance. Maryanne
