With some help from my dad I was able to build a 4x8 raised garden bed. I have never planted a garden before but I have 2 children under 3 years old and thought this would be a great summer project for us. I have had houseplants before but never vegetables. I planted tomatoes, green peppers, red peppers, lettuce, cilantro, red onions and green beans. Here is my really stupid question........how will I know when to water the garden or when rainwater is enough???
If anyone has a really dummied down answer or can suggest some simple way that I can tell if my garden needs water I would be very appreciative. My mom has had gardens and alll she can tell me is "you will know when to water" well, I don't. HELP!!!
