Tempature Soil Before Planting

One way to determine the best time to plant is by soil temperature. Soil thermometers are available at most garden supply stores. Insert the thermometer two inches into the soil for cool season crops, or four inches for warm season crops. Average the temperature at midday for four or five days. You can plant cool season crops when the temperature is around 50 degrees. Wait until the temperature is around 60 degrees for warm season crops.
