|Thanks for all your information on the audios I have listened to over the past few weeks! I am starting my garden in my backyard and want to know what vegetables & herbs I can water from a sprinkler(leaves get wet) and which ones I should use a dripper?
Keep up the GOoD work!

|Most everything. If you water in morning, and everything will get dry before nite. Tomatoes and ground fruit i think would be your only exceptions for no sprinklers. The sprinklers wash alot of bugs away.
What are you planting ? And where do you live ??? We need that info.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

You may get lots of different answers.
For my garden I stopped the overhead watering and apply water to the soil area only. This cuts down on evaporation and the water goes only where it needs to be, not all over the yard.

|I'll add to greene's good advice by saying "It depends where you live" because humidity, wind and sun intensity play a big role in where and how to water your vegetable garden.
Please fill in your profile with at least your city/state/country so that we'll have a better idea of your climate. Just a zone doesn't help at all with this question.
