As we enter summer, drought awareness will get ramped up as we try to squeeze the most out of every drop. Keep your vegetable garden consistently watered (twice a week irrigation for most veggies is sufficient), mulched and weeded. Water before 8 a.m. to reduce chances of fungal infection and to conserve moisture. Monitor soil moisture before turning on the hose; you may be able to skip a day here or there. Those water savings all add up. But if your tomatoes are wilting, give them a drink.
