Vegetable Gardening

I just recently started a garden, so I bought some soil, manure, and peat moss. I made a raised bed and planted tomato plants, green peppers, and cucumbers. The plants are about 8 to 10 inches high. It’s been about 8 days and the plant leaves seem to curl a little, also a slight yellowing on the tomato leaves. I water them in the morning every day. What is causing this? I have good soil and 7 hours of direct light a day.

You may not be watering deep enough. Now that the plants have established themselves, you can just water 1-2 times a week for 20 minutes or so. Really, the plants need 2″ of water a week, so you may want to measure how much your watering system is spreading. When you water for longer periods, the roots go deeper and you get healthier plants.
