How to Water Vegetable Garden
Why does a successful vegetable garden need water?
Water is essential for growing a healthy crop in the garden. Have the water source for your organic garden close-by for easy access. An outside tap with a hose is the perfect solution but if you don't have one available, it's easy enough to fix. Using a watering can works well. Another way of transporting water to your garden is filling plastic bottles that you might have stored by the recycling bin. Don't use plastic bottles that have stored chemicals. Any large container would be helpful in watering the vegetables, herbs and flowers that grow in your organic garden.You can harvest rainwater from the roof. You can create small ponds in the garden to help catch water.
Allow the rainy weather to guide when and how to water your companion planting garden. In extreme hot weather, the garden will need some extra water. Be aware that with high winds come dry soil so water appropriately. Also keep an eye on the moisture content of the soil when it is dry or when there is not enough rain or extremely hot weather. Water only when the soil needs it. It's not how dry the surface of the soil looks, it's below the surface that should determine if the soil needs to be watered or not.
We went through a heatwave this summer so I watered the garden ever evening when the sun went down. If it rained that day, I got lucky with no watering that night. Diligent watering of the seeds and seedlings will help the seeds/ seedlings break through the soil.
How to Water your Companion Planting Garden:
When growing a garden, remember to weed regularly to allow the seeds and seedlings to grow well. Weeds will rob the area around the vegetable of it's light and moisture so it is best to remove weeds as they appear. The best thing about weeding now is that the weeds become mulch, cutting down the time that is needed to deal with the weeds and cuts down the time to dispose of them.
