Still considering growning my own food out back. Is it bad to spray them if I wash them?

In brief: Depends

Depends on what you spray with and what the vegetable is.
Washing certainly is beneficial in any case. You may want to read about organic gardening, its fun especially if you like to garden. Amazon has a number of books, they will address your concern about pesticides.
