The pumpkins look a little sad in the second photo, but it was about 105*F when I took it and one of our days to water. So excuse their lack of pep. Our plan to water every 4-days continues to work out well. The veggies do not grow as quickly, but they are flowering, fruiting, and producing while conserving water. A few sad pumpkin leaves is better than none at all.
This week I have seen (and tasted) some green beans, pumpkin flowers, baby cucumbers, the beginnings of cabbage heads, sad lettuce (not really the right temp for greens), and a few pepper and basil plants lurking about.
Not bad for watering only twice a week!
