Well first off I am really happy we didn't loose power. We did however get pounded with rain. 1/2 an inch Friday night in the span of maybe an hour, and again Saturday with a little over 1/2. Temps have been near 100, the plants look great, but I needed to fertilize, so did that yesterday AM.
More storms forecast for the next few days. Since my plants are pretty well established I don't need to worry about shallow roots do I? And I am pretty sure there is not a thing I can do about it. I had been watering every two or three days. Using the ever reliable sick your finger down about 5-6 inches and feel the soil method.
Should I keep using this method and see how the rain does? I don't think I am phrasing this well.
