Vegetable Garden

Anonymous added on May 6, 2014 | Answered

I saw your article on plants and shrubs that do well near salt water.  My question is, will planting my vegetable garden too close to a salt water tidal river affect the taste of the vegetables?

The salt itself should not, but it could cause stunted growth, which does sometimes reduce the robustness of the flavor of fruits and vegetables.
