Q.Is diluted vinegar water safe for watering a veggie garden? (1/2 C vinegar/approx 4-5 gals of water)

Zone S7L 1C9 | Anonymous added on May 27, 2020 | Answered

The growing season in our neck of the woods has been very dry. Water is expensive and so we’ve been using previously used indoor water for water. I’ve gone “green” by using vinegar in laundry instead of soaps. Since a machine load of water would only include about 1/2 c vinegar would it be safe to use on veggie plants? Thanks. 🙂
