Soil temperature

Post  jimmy cee on 8/5/2016, 10:46 pm

I'm keeping a thermometer in the soil about 4 inches down under my tomato canopy.
It reads 72 in the morning and evening, during the heat of day it gets to 78.
These are premium temps for growing tomato's.

I check the temp of the Mix in various beds in the spring to see when one is warm enough to plant the intended crop. I avoided dampening off of cucumbers, melons and winter squash seedling this year because I made sure the soil was warm enough. For this purpose, the short kitchen thermometer works fine. Just don't get caught.
