Our Neighbor takes care of that for us with his swimming pool water...

Why would it only affect the Broccoli and Cauliflower and all other plants are growing just fine...

As for the nitrogen comment above, Do tree leaves have alot of Nitrogen in them? we have not put down any fertilizer or manure on the yard garden in 10 years, but have been using the leaves that fall in the yard, each fall and lay them down and let them rot all winter long then till them in, in the spring...

Also, we bag the grass when we cut it and put it on a pile and let it get black then when it is all black, we put that on the garden and till it in and also use it during the summer to mulch to keep the weeds at bay!
