Is it possible to plant vegetables in an area that has been sprayed with Round-Up? If so, is there a recommended waiting period or process that I should follow before sowing or planting in the specified area?

You should find the information you need on the Roundup label. But if you don't have or can't read the label, I'll offer the following: According to University of California at Davis, Glyphosate (Roundup or Kleenup)can be used in the garden prior to planting several garden vegetables. After 7 days, the seeds, rooted cuttings, or transplants of many garden vegetables can be planted. The biggest exception is tomatoes. Tomato transplants cannot be planted for 30 days; however, seeds may be planted 7 days after the use of glyphosate. Again, the label lists the plants and proper waiting intervals for planting.
