Tool or Gardening Product
We veggie gardeners can use all the help possible in light of the fluctuating weather. Soil (not air) temperature is key to starting seeds successfully. Cold soil can rot seeds of warm-weather plants (cucumbers, beans, melons, summer squash). Using a waterproof digital soil thermometer for accurate soil temperature is smart and economical. Prices range from $7 to $60.
