It's ok to water ahead of what you believe will be hot dry weather rather than wait for wilt or worse
Some people are only allowed to water on even says, some are odd (which are you)
Me, I'm an "even" so I get screwed everytime a month has 31 days
Keep an umbrella in the truck in case it rains

...gosh there are so many things to consider.
Yet one more reason why I do not approve of layering "topsoil" mixes over sand.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

It is worth pointing out, though that without using the words you yourself treat most people here and many of your customers in the third person as if they are one or the other or both.
It is not about you at all... have you come busting in on a conversation ,,, calling me ignorant??? Not that I recall...
But if you want to harbor bad feelings toward me,,, have at it...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
