I thought I would post, perhaps not so much a question, but more of an open discussion. Perhaps this will spark some ideas for some of the newer gardeners.
Many of use who have water piped to us from city reservours, may have water that was processed with clorine. I know, I do. I can smell "bleach" whenever I shower, or turn on a faucet. I refuse to drink it myself, so, I have a "britta" type pitcher that filters the water for me. I don't like giving my plants this water either.
What measures do you take to obtain suitible water for your plants?
If money and time were no option, what would you do to improve, or completely change the system you are currently using?
My answers to these questions.
Currently, because I am using pots only and a very small garden, I do use my tap water, however, what I do is fill up a barrel which sits out in the sun for several days to nuetralize some of the clorine in the water.
Next year, I plan to install gutters and collect rain water. This is something that I had at my old house, but, living in Texas, we do have seasons with very little water.
I wish that our treated tap water was filtered out so that all you had was H2O and that's it.
What are you guys doing with yours?
