We here at Watch Us Grow love to garden – And we want you to love it too!

 There is nothing better than harvesting your own fresh Tomatoes,Cucumbers, peas, Beans,Carrots,onions or whatever it is that you planted in your garden. But as much as we want you to love it , we also want you to be successful at it.


There is a little pre planting work to do besides the usual tilling of
your plot.


If this is your first go around with vegetable gardening you should choose a plot that will get full sun for most of the daylight hours, also choose a spot the is not to low as these areas will tend to be possibly to wet at times.

But most importantly make sure your not planting to early – we’re talking
about soil temperature.


Some cool weather crops such as carrots, leaf lettuce, peas, spinach,onions, can be planted in soil as cool as 40 degrees. Most of your other plants or seeds you should not plant until the soil reaches 55 to 60 degrees or higher.


You can check the soil temperature with  soil thermometer similar to the type you may use for composting.
