I'm going to start gardening this spring. I want to build above ground boxes and I was going to use 2x12 wolmanized wood. Will the chemicals in the wood be released into the soil and absorbed by my vegetables?

There is much controversy over the safety of treated wood. Rather than try to summarize the debate here, I suggest you go to National Gardening magazine's web site; the current issue has an article on just this subject:

I hope this helps!
