07/13/2021

Plants in the ground generally need one inch of water per week with waterings spread out across about three times a week (make sure to factor in any rain). Seedlings should be watered twice a day until their roots are well-established.

Not sure if it's time to water? Feel your soil! When the soil sticks in your hand and you can form it into a ball, it is moist enough. But, if it barely holds together in the palm of your hand, or if the surface looks hard, baked, or cracked, it is probably dry and it’s time to water. Also, check to see if the soil is dry an inch below the surface as that suggests it needs water.

It’s best to water early in the day while dew is still on the leaves so the foliage dries off by evening. When the
plants are watered at night, the foliage stays wet for a long period of time and disease problems build up. If you can not water in the morning, water in the evening, and not in the middle of the day to avoid water loss to evaporation.

Volunteers are welcome to join the ADRC Gardening Club. Have fun watering, weeding, and harvesting veggies & fruit.
