Tomatoes grow better with rain water.
If you grow any number of garden vegetables, even if it's just a few plants that you like to see growing from seed or a small baby plant, you need to realize how important it is to keep them watered well.
Rainwater can be stored and kept enclosed to prevent mosquito larvae from forming and keep it until you need it to water plants in the garden when there is no rain to be expected for weeks at a time.
If you decide you would simply rather water your outdoor garden plants with hose water from the outdoor faucet, think twice. That water is a valuable and treasured resource. It also contains chloride and other chemicals put there to kill bacteria that is required by law to be put in the water so humans can safely consume it. But, plants by nature do better with rainwater. It's pretty simple. Rain does not contain anything but, well H2O, water!
But to understand more about why it is important to consider this I have put a link under this to tell us all why it is so important to consider using rainwater not municipal tap water for your garden plants, and for that matter any and all household plants, both indoors and outdoors.
