In our hot dry summer, the struggle to keep plants hydrated can be very real. Between the dry air and the 115f midday heat, even the hardiest of plants wilts. Last summer, even with a 30% shade cloth I had to water 2-3× a day from June to September... except on monsoon days, which were not often enough. How do you best propose to retain water in the upcoming summer? What types of mulch do you have access to and utilize? Are drip systems all they are cracked up to be? Even our Armenian cucumbers struggled.
