Water & Fertilizer
Water needs vary for vegetable plants, but most require at least one inch of water every week, either from rain or supplemental watering. A rain gauge is a great tool to measure water amounts.
Fertilize at the time of planting with a slow-release fertilizer, such as Osmocote,, and then regularly every 10 days to two weeks with a water soluble formula, such as English Gardens Bloom Booster.
Keep the vegetable garden free of weeds, which compete with plants for water and nutrients.
A layer of mulch two to four inches between the rows can help prevent weeds and conserve moisture.
