comparison of vegetable water needs
I have been searching for some sort of comparison of water needs for various vegetables. I realize that a hard and fast 'this vegetable needs X amount of water per' is not a reasonable expectation. I am looking more for a 'tomatoes take about X times as much water as vegetable Y' type of comparison. Since my entire garden will be in similar drainage conditions the ratio concept seems sound. I am attempting to set up a drip system but obviously I need to water a large tomato plant much differently that a carrot. My goal is to set a flow rate at each plant so that the ones that need more get it in the same amount of time that I don't drown the ones that need less. Perhaps not an exact science but better than not putting any effort at getting an appropriate amount.
