Don't Eat Vegetables from Flooded Gardens: If a stream infiltrates your garden, your vegetables may be contaminated.

A downpour may result in pooled water that can damage your garden, but won't render it inedible. The younger the plants, the more likely they are to survive; the closer to harvest, the more damage is likely. Leafy greens may rot, and dirt can infiltrate, leaving them unpalatable. Beets, radishes, onions, potatoes and other root crops are more resilient to rot. Melons, eggplant, winter squash and other vegetables with hard rinds may be contaminated on the outside, and that contamination can be transferred to the edible flesh when cutting them open, so clean them thoroughly.
