Answer: It's possible that you worked the soil when it was too wet, resulting in texture that's hard to keep moist. You can wait until rainfall thoroughly rewets the soil, then add a 2"-3" layer of organic matter over the soil surface. The mulch will keep the sun from completely drying out the top of the soil. An added bonus is that the mulch will suppress weeds and provide nutrients as it decomposes. At the end of the season remove plant debris and work the organic mulch material into the soil. Good luck with your veggie garden!
