To be frank, ma'am, with pressure treated lumber being yanked out of kid's
playgrounds and the fact that it has to be disposed of as toxic waste, I would
advise your friend to find some other place to trellis her climbing plants,
especially if she wants to eat them.
With what we know now about PT lumber, it's really not worth the risk or
liability to the garden in case somebody she feeds her stuff to gets ill.

I know this has probably asked a million times, but here goes: what is the
"official" thought on safe gardening distance from a pressure treated lumber
fence post. The posts were sunk in year 2000 are spaced about 10 feet apart. The
beds are not raised beds, just rows. But a gardener would like to use the
fence for climbing plants.
