Dog Poop in Planting Areas

I read an article you posted about dog poop and gardens. I know dog poop is not good to use, but what if your dog has pooped all winter where you want to plant. Is there any way to "clean" the soil, or do I just need to remove the surface feces and turn the soil over and plant as usual? Thanks!

Is it good to eat the oranges off the orange tree, if the dog poops near it daily and urinates as well?

It won't effect the fruit at all. Think about it - people commonly fertilize their gardens with cow manure, and, even better, chicken manure. The dog waste moistens the soil at the surface level, where it is filtered by the grass and soil. It evaporates quickly, and never gets deep enough into the soil to effect the tree. Trees take their water from deep levels in the soil, and filter it even more by the time it gets to the fruit. Rest assured that - unless you are using chemical pesticides on it - the fruit is healthy, wholesome, and wonderful.
