How Much is an Inch of Water?
In regards to gardening, I've read things like, "During the fruiting season they'll (strawberries) need around an inch of water each week."
I've read/heard this on several occasions and thought "an inch of water" meant that you kept watering the (container) plant until there was an inch of water above the soil. But that doesn't really make sense. What if the pot is super large? Or the water never sits an inch above the soil? Wouldn't this cause over-watering?
Can someone please explain to me how much "one inch of water" equates to?
The correct response will solve a long time mystery for me. Thank you in advance for your help!
