Q. We are now in drought restrictions. What is the best way to get enough water to our peach trees to ensure that the buds develop for next spring? We normally would use our drip irrigation twice per week but now are limited to once per week.

A. Increase the amount of water you provide on your designated irrigation day and provide a transition on the second day by hand watering once a week for a few weeks until we get by this record hot weather. Good luck!
