I don't know but I have to be watering my plants constantly. I may have to get some one to look after my plants when I go on vacation.

I tend to have things planted at this time of year which do okay without too much water. It's been in the 90s recently, and I've been getting out there to water every two days? The shade from the insane pumpkin plants seem to be keeping everything damp.
I have a soaker hose and water timer I put out when we go on vacation.
Ok, I hate to admit it but we had a stretch of hot weather with no rain for about 6-8 days and I didn't water the garden. It flourished. Maybe it would have grown better with the water but overall it seemed to like the heat. Towards the end I almost gave in but saw we were having a big rain that night.
We don't have an outdoor hose yet (DH is supposed to put it in sometime...) and out garden is pretty far from the house. I still remember all the watering I was doing when I planted the garden and wasn't too enthusiastic over the idea of carrying bucket after bucket of water again.
But I was in the garden daily, watching for signs of stress, everything looked fine. We were getting a heavy dew overnight.
I like the idea of a timer.
