We are watering most of the garden with drip hoses. We like the 1" hoses to the ½" hoses. They run along the beds watering the roots of the plants. Peppers, tomatoes, celery, parsley, and our Peruvian mint all like plenty of water. So far we have only had two hoses break. Glad we noticed because with the heat this summer it would be easy to lose many plants without regular watering.
