The three major mistakes we make when watering our plants are: 1. We tend to overwater. More often then not we overwater because we worry that the plants are wilting. However, plants, and particularly pepper plants, could wilt because they have been over watered. 2. When not careful, we splash soil from the garden onto the plants’ leaves, which could cause disease from the soil in the garden to transfer to the plant. 3. In hot places like Arizona (or any place where your plants are exposed to the sun for extended periods of time), if we splash water on the leaves, it will cause the leaves to burn. And this applies for all plants, not just your vegetable garden. It could happen to the grass on your lawn too. *In hot weather places also make sure to let the water run until is cool enough to water your garden.
