If I don't add anything to them or to my lawn, can I eat vegetables I grow in my yard?

In brief: Sure

Be sure to wash them first before eating.
Locally and naturally grown vegetables are especially fresh, and high in nutrients.

be sure the lawn was not treated chemically prior to your stweardship. double digging a garden enriched with horse or cow manure, planted with companion crops and weeded daily should give outstanding table fare

Also test your soil for lead- especially if you live in a building built after 1964, near a freeway, battery plant, heavy industry
