Watering Your Plants

Most gardeners have stocked up their garages with all sorts of products to save their plants from natural enemies like hungry insects and overpowering weeds. What many gardeners don't know is this: even more important than defending against enemies is to see that plants get what they need for photosynthesis, especially water. Watering is an art, because under-watering causes water deficiency and over-watering can cause roots to rot.

What You'll Need:


  • 2 lg. cucumber, diced
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1/2 lg. red onion, cut into quarters & very thinly sliced
  • 3 lg. tomatoes, diced
  • 1 green or red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 (3.8 oz.) cans sliced black olives
  • 2 tablespoons (or more) chopped, fresh basil
  • 2 teaspoons (or more) fresh thyme leaves


  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon Mediterranean sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper (white or black)
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil


  • In a large salad bowl, combine the cucumbers, zucchini, red onion, tomatoes, bell pepper, olives, basil and thyme - mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, sugar, pepper and olive oil.
  • Sample the dressing and adjust seasonings as desired.
  • Pour the dressing over the salad (add a little at a time, mixing in between, to avoid using too much dressing--you will probably have a little more dressing than you need).
  • Cover and place in refrigerator and let marinate (stirring a couple of times) for at least 4 hours.
