Use mulch around plants to prevent evaporation of water from the soil and to keep the soil around plant roots cool. Water early in the day when the air temperature is cooler to ensure that the irrigation water you apply reaches the roots of the plants. Weeds compete with vegetables for nutrients and moisture. By weeding before you go, you give your vegetables the best possible chance of success and avoid any unpleasant surprises when you return.
