If the soil that you will be growing in has ever been treated with chemicals i.e. weed & feed spray or dust, you would want to replace it. Plants take what they need from the soil, including chemicals. You'd want soil that is free from chemicals and loaded with organic compost/humus to provide the nutrients the plants need to produce well. You should do some research into organic fertilizers.
When you buy seeds, make sure they've not been treated with chemicals. Some corn and squash seeds are treated. You'd probably want heirloom seeds that aren't hybrid or genetically modified. It's harder to find these varieties in the average store. If you buy started plants, you'll want to make sure they've not been fertilized/fed with a chemical fertilizer/food.
www.gardensalive.com is a good place to start looking.
