Watering during fall and winter?

At this time in Missouri, January 4, 2016, it is cold and no snow yet. It rained a lot but my 3ft raised beds are dry now. I do not have a watering system, so do I water my garden with my water hose, high overhead, or low close to the ground? Forecast showing light rain this coming Wednesday. Either we get a lot of rain or we have dry days, more dry days than wet days. When do I water my fall/winter veggie garden? I have sugar snap peas, lettuce, onions, spinach, garlic, collards. I have prepped my asparagus bed that I started in August 2015. Do I water it during fall and winter months? All I did was to cut the ferns down (saw an asparagus cane coming up), and layered about 2-3 inches of straw over it. I am thinking now, I forgot to add manure and fertilizer. Should I do anything else? Thank You!
