Hi Justine,

Unfortunately, as I stated, the garden is located at my friends house and I
am trying to make it as convenient for him as possible.  That's why I got
the timer (I can program it to water for 2 hours every 4 days..etc).  I
don't have the luxury to check the soil every day :^(

So I'm really trying to find out quantitatively how much to water each
plant.  Each plant has a 1 gallon/hour dripper on it.

Best regards,

Greg Park
