I’ve set up my zone schedules but I’m concerned about my vegetable garden. I don’t see any listing for “Vegetables” so I’ve selected “Perennial” as the vegetation. I also selected “Loam” for the soil, “Lots of sun” for the exposure, and “Flat” for the slope. I also input a custom nozzle. This resulted in a watering time of 1 hour 23 minutes. That’s about half of what I used to water, and the plants are looking mighty thirsty. Has anyone nailed their settings for a raised bed vegetable garden that would care to share their info?
In case it would help get an accurate recommendation, here are my specs: My vegetable garden is made up of three 4’ x 8’ raised beds. I’ve got Netafim drip line installed in these beds, which have built-in emitters every 18", and the lateral lines are 18" apart. The Netafim label specifies these emitters deliver water at .92 GPH. I found a gallons per hour to Inches per hour convertor online which gave me a figure of “.66” to put in the “Precip” area. This resulted in a 1 hour 23 minute watering time about twice a week. Our temps hover in the mid 90s to lower 100s most of the summer. Does my Flex schedule sound about right? Should I just relax and let it do it’s thing?
