Watering Tomatoes in CA
I've seen it posted many times that some people only water their tomatoes/veges once a week but today my tomatoes are looking wilted/droopy & I watered just this morning. Now, today is suddenly 85 degrees and up till now it's only been in the 70's. Last year when I asked a neighbor to water the garden during a trip he reported that I was watering too much (daily in July/August/Sept) although when I returned everything was noticeably wilted. How often should I be watering in 80-90 degree heat in Sacramento? Am I supposed to be letting the plants wilt regularly before watering or keep them watered & looking happy? Is it unusual that the tomato plants would wilt so easily today or not unusual since they're not used to our temperature spike? The garden bed does side up to the stuccoed house but I plan on putting 4x8 plywood there to attach trellis netting to for the cucumbers, cantalopes & baby watermelon. Thanks for your advice!
