How can I conserve water?
Do not use overhead sprinklers, they are an inefficient waste of water. Never leave a hose on unattended! Water slowly; this avoids run-off by allowing the soil to absorb water. Create small "wells" around each plant or along the row; this focuses the water on the root area. While waiting to allow water to slowly soak in, tidy up your plot and adjoining path. Water is a finite resource - use it wisely.
