The first step in starting your Spring garden (after you've picked out your vegetable seeds) is to make sure your soil is warm enough for the seeds or plants to survive.

Different plants like different temperatures, but most need a soil temperature of at least 60F to grow and thrive. A compost thermometer is the easiest way to measure your soil temperature. If the soil isn’t warm enough when you plant, the seeds will either rot or sit there until the soil is warm enough for them to grow.

Next, prepare your soil and add any amendments (compost, natural fertilizer, etc) of your choice. You're ready to get started!
