Soil Temps are Struggling

Posted: 04 Apr 2013 05:44 AM

Our lack of really warm days and snows in March have not helped soil temperatures much as shown by the featured chart. The exact opposite was true in 2012 and the response was to have some of the warmest soil temperatures recorded since 1988 by mid March. Eventually, climatology will win this battle and soil temperatures will warm enough to permit gardens to be planted and agricultural crops to go in. Warmer temperatures for the rest of this week will help as well.

Good = 22
Bad = 4
