Default Soft Water

A few years ago we had so problems with our water heater, it was full of lime. The plumber recommended a water softener. Soon we had soft water.

Last January we had problems with our tomato starts. They refused to grow. I could not figure out what was wrong. We had our worst year yet. This year, the same thing. Starts are refusing to grow.

My dad was having trouble with his keurig coffee maker, so he called them. The first thing they asked was, "do you use soft water?" Of course the soft water was the problem. He switched water and is happy with his machine.

That got me thinking, could the soft water be stunting the tomato starts?
Yes it was.

I had to learn the hard way, so please do not use soft water for your plants...
