I put my peppers and cucumbers in the same bed, and it appears that I am overwatering my peppers. It'd be preferable to not remove any plants, as I don't have room. Is there an advisable way to build a dam in my garden bed to keep the plants separate? My first instinct is to shove in a thin piece of plywood but I'm afraid that the glue will leach into the soil.

Dig some holes in the cucumber side. You can leave them bare or line them by inserting terra-cotta pots. Water those holes.

Simply mounding earth can also work, but holes are more fool-proof.
