Your blog is fun to read. So when do you stop watering newly planted veggie seeds daily and start doing it weekly? I have the same veggies as you in my garden, but I am new at this.

Thanks!
The seeds need to be watered daily at least until they germinate. After that, you could maybe stretch it out a bit but it depends how hot and dry that area of the garden is. My little raised beds dry out fairly quickly so I'm still watering every day for a while. Veggies need lots of sun and water so just don't let them dry out. Once the plants get bigger and their leaves start to shade the soil, you could probably space out the watering even more.
Hope that helps!
