I have read that my garden needs an inch of water. If I am watering with a hose, how do I know if I am watering enough? How can I tell that I have watered an inch?

The best way to water with a hose is to let it barely dribble at the base of the plant for 30 min. to an hour. That way the water can soak deep to the roots !

If you are watering with a sprinkler, you can set a glass out and watch for it to fill up to about 1″. If you are just watering with the hose straight, fill up a pan with water and count how long it takes to fill it up with 1″ and that will be how long it takes to get 1″ of water onto the space of the pan.
