We have well water here at our home and it's very, very soft. Will that have a bad effect on our vegetable garden? If so, what can we do?
Will Our Well Water, Which Is Very Soft, Affect Our Vegetables

Having your well water tested will help you determine if there are excess salts in the well.
Sodium is naturally occurring, but a test will determine if the amounts are higher then normal.
If they are in normal ranges, you do not need to worry about using the well water for your plants.
Whether the salt is naturally occurring or introduced in a water filtration system, the effects are the same.
Your County Extension Office may be able to direct you to the closest lab in your area.
