How much should I water greenhouse tomatoes and cucumbers?
From what I'm reading here , I've been bad for over watering eveything!

Toms need a regular watering, but not a flooding. If they're in pots in trays, then enough to see the water at the bottom. If they're in a border, then about 2 or three pints a day around a couple of plants is fine, but watch what the weather is doing to them on hot days or cold days.
 
Cuces should be on a small mound if possible, as they hate having water sloshing around their lower stems, so water - say - a half gal around them most days, unless it is either very hot or very cold.

Of course, you can also add some liquid feed when you do this, but read the label!
