Question: I have an above ground garden that I recently built. I live in Arizona and currently temperatures rise to 100-110 degrees. I need to know how often and how long to water it.
Reason for Above Ground Just in case this pertains, I picked this because I have a 6 month black lab puppy who loves to dig. That and we live in a rental property and I really don't want to have to uproot a garden when/if we move.
Soil: 50/50 mix of Miracle-Gro Potting Mix and omni. I did not use any AZ soil.
sunlight: Garden sits along west wall of backyard so it gets about 6-8 hours of sunlight and that tan shade is drawn over it at all times during the summer.
- annaheim peppers
- green beans
- artichoke - this has been re-planted in the ground as i learned they get quite big!
Watering Method The picture shows a soaker hose, however I have replaced the hose with a sprinkler system, with a single 360 degree sprayer for each bucket. I can control flow on an individual bucket basis. However, timer is set for the entire garden
