1. How do you water your garden in a dry spell? I talked to a farmer and he said 1 gallon a day per plant in this weather. I just collect rain water and pour close to the stems at dusk. That being said I've already had to get a hand shovel and break up the soil. Now my clay soil is all cracked again despite my watering. I'm finding watering the garden is the hardest part of gardening so far.
2. I have what I think is mold on most of my zucchini and some of my yellow squash. I removed the yellow leaves, the most covered leaves, and the almost dead leaves.
