Since your plants are in pots, I find that situation warrants considerably more watering than what plants do when directly in the ground.
I don't grow my vegetables in pots but I do have quite a few house plants on my porches in pots of varying sizes and in the summer months I have to water them daily. If I miss a day or two, my plants become seriously wilted.
With our daily temperatures hovering in the low to upper 70's now, I can get by with watering the potted plants every other day.
