I have been in the upper desert for only 5 years and don't know how much or rather how often to water. I have sprinkler systems that come on every morning. My veggies and roses and herbs are in large plastic pots and I water deeply every morning. Am I overwatering?

As long as your plants are thriving, your watering schedule is just right. Plants in containers can require daily watering when the weather is hot but less water when the temperature cools down. As long as your plants are growing nicely and are not turning yellow (sign of overwatering) I think you're doing a great job. Enjoy your garden!
