me too. My one plant of sweet 100's drinks every bit of a gallon plus a day. It is behind a solid fence and is blocked by afternoon sun. But it is in a 7 gallon pot and not in the ground if that helps.
Early season 1x maybe 2x a week. As long as soil is moist. This time of year, some plants get a drink everyday others is every other day. If wilt I water. But I have a bush early girl. So far that plant is very hardy and has not wilted 1x. I water it if the soil is dry. Damn mockingbirds are picking my tomatoes lately. They gonna have to find a new home.

seven dust at the base ?
Might give that a try, first I have to get some! At my old place entire garden was on my back patio elevated 5' off the ground, never really had a bug problem there. With Wetlands nearby thought had rat problems but quickly took care of that with traps and some peanut butter!

yep, peanut butter is good for rats. when they eat it, it sticks to the roof of their mouth and they suffocate.

I saw a cardinal fly into my tomatoes and was having bad feelings about him when out he pops with a big old bug in his mouth. We good now.

I haven't found birds to bother the garden too much, mostly like you witnessed they are after bugs but will also go after seed if something seeds out. 1.75" of rain at my place with those lightning filled storms yesterday!

Wow, talk about muggy this morning, stormy weekend for sure. I think it was Friday when some nasty storms blew up and went thru us, had to stand up several of my baby Sawtooth oak trees that got blown over. Then Sunday afternoon a storm blew up right over us and an hour later we had 2.5" of rain, the garden is loving it!

Do ya'll buy new seeds every year for your veggies or can you use left over seeds (packages) from previous years? I was thinking about stocking up on seeds but don't know if that is a good idea or not.
