Do I need to go container, or can I do raised bed?

9 years ago

Our large, hillside back yard was blasted with weed killer last summer - everything died. It went from being a green, lush place to dry, dead earth. After a few months, the grass has made a comeback, but now I want to plant a vegetable garden and I don't know if the ground is suitable anymore. I'm the sort of person that likes to go organic and low chemical when possible.

Is the ground still toxic? If I make a raised bed on it, will my veggies die? Is container gardening the better option for a person like me?
