Thanks for your message and asking, I saw many posts of yours in this forum, you are an active participant.
I am not an experienced in this field, but I am trying to take it as a hobby, and then may be by gaining experience move to Hydroponics or may be Aquaponics, because I also love to keep fish tank, which I kept during my student life.
I am interested in tomatoes, some varieties of chilies, parsley and celery. Temperature in my area is between 31 to 24 C.
My garden soil is quite salty, as one of my friend tested with his TDS meter and we shocked to know that the soil current TDS is 7230 and current pH is 6.6, is there any solution to reduce salt from my garden soil?
The temperature seems ok for the crops you are mentioning.However the soil does seem very salty.
The following methods can be used to reduce salt in the soil.
1. Thoroughly dig up the soil and till it. It will ensure good drainage.
2. Add some inert material to the soil such as sand/cocopeat( low EC).
There are lots of flushing solutions in the market for use in hydroponics systems. But that may not be economical for your scale.
Is container garden not an option?
