How long do you water?

(Pam) Warren, CT(Zone 5b)

I have a pile of new stuff from Dripworks that I am in the process of installing - emitters, sprayers and drip hose. My gardens are a mix of perennials for the most part, with the occasional shrub, rose, etc. I have a small separate veggie garden with raised beds, 3 3x6 and one 2x 15. Should that be a separate zone? And how long should I set the timers for? I'm a little late doing this, we're going away for nearly a month, leaving Monday afternoon. I wish I had time to test it all out first, but I have to wing it and hope for the best.

Any advice greatly appreciated!
