Hey all, been out of the game for a while and finally (almost) in a place where I can get back to it!

The almost is due to only being able to grow outside for now, it is a fun adventure however.

I'm wondering about watering with in ground plants. I have 3 plants that are about 3ft tall and they never seem to NEED water. They don't get droopy, the soil doesnt dry out much past a certain point. It hasn't even rained that frequently. I do have mulch on the bed, but the area under the plants is clear of mulch to help the soil dry out more.

I have watered them a couple times even though they didn't really seem to need it and it didn't seem to affect them much either way.

I am probably just overthinking, but im worrying they are not growing as much as they could be...

Those look great my friend. Mother Nature has its way. You most likely have great soil and the roots are deep and getting moisture.
Your plants will tell you when they need water and food.
Keep it simple,,keep an eye on new growth, because that is what tells you what is going on,and let them do their thing .
