The garden need 2"-3" of water a week, which includes any rainfall you may get. How long you should water varies on your watering source (i.e. sprinkler, hose, etc.) and the water pressure. If using a sprinkler, set up a glass or jar and watch it until it has filled up with 2-3" of water and that is how you will know the garden has enough water. If you are just watering with the hose (by hand or soaker), fill up a pan with water and count how long it takes to fill it up with 2-3" and that will be how long it takes to water.
