Watering your garden briefly each day will only wet the surface of the soil. This water will soon evaporate, never reaching the roots of your plants. It is far more effective to give your garden a good soaking so that the soil is moist to a depth of about 5 or 6 inches, where the roots of the plants are. Water this deep in the soil will take longer to evaporate, so you will not have to water as often.
Water evaporation is greatest in the middle of the day when the sun is highest.
