Is your vegetable garden and ornamental plants struggling to survive? I've found that well water PH levels tend to be on the extreme side, making it impossible to grow many things. A PH reader comes in handy for this. Out here in Ocotillo, Ca, lower Colorado Desert, I've found that adding vinegar to the water before using it, helps excellently!
Both Apple Cider Vinegar and White Vinegar work great, the difference being that White is much stronger, therefore, less is needed. For example: I used an 18 gallon tote to mix my water and vinegar. 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider vinegar or 1 teaspoon of White vinegar, is needed to balance the PH levels of approximately 16 gallons of our well water. Note: after a couple of days, the unused portion of balanced water will revert back to it's normal pH levels and will need to be retreated before use.
I also recommend adding water absorbing crystals to your plant soils, to retain moisture between waterings. A real life saver here in the high temperatures. Add fresh crystals yearly.
I hope this helps.😀 Best gardening wishes, Fefe
