Am having to water quite copiously at present. As well as being very warm, the air has often been dry (other than the day and night of mega dew points this time last week), and it has been windy at times too. I am using water from the tap, some thing I never did last year, as although rain was sparse, it fell frequently enough for me to catch enough to use until the next shower. This year, it was dry, dry, dry, and then we had a six week monsoon offering me far more water than I could store. Then the rain has since switched itself off once more, bcoming dry and very warm, which meant water stocks depleted rapidly.
With so much of my veg in seedling stage at present, I cannot 'not' water on a daily basis.
Hoping for a 'double bubble' this weekend; a good few hours of steady rain to wet the ground to reasonable depth, plus ability to catch enough of the rain to fill my butts for the drier periods.
