is it okay to plant a vegetable garden in a area that used to have a leach field ? It's be 10 years since the leach field was in use.

It shouldn't pose any health issues. It's possible that the leach field has pretty salty soil though. Gray water tends to do that. Again, however, with that much passage of time, it might be just fine. Try it and see!
