abeeson20, so sorry to hear the shortage of rainfall in your area. It reminds me of the time I lived in Texas for 2 years. We could not even grill because of the dry weather and risk of starting a brush fire. It sounds like you are taking all of the correct steps to ensuring that your garden is getting plenty of water. Mulching will help retain moisture and keep the soil cool. Also, try watering sometime after 5:00pm instead of mid-day. That way the plants would have absorbed most of the water by the next day and the roots won't be at risk of boiling if you watered during the day. Hope that helps.

Happy Gardening!
