Saline Jefferson More Than 30,000 Readers Probe to know when to plant vegetables use a soil thermometer to find out when it's time to plant," said Ward Upham, who coordinates the Mas- ter Gardener program for K-State Research and Extension. Soil temperature is more reli- able than folklore, outdoor tempera- ture, the date, or store displays, he said. Soil thermometers can look a lot like meat thermometers, with a round dial on top and metal probe on bottom. But, meat thermometers must read cooking temperatures into the hundreds of degrees. Soil ther- Growing vegetables is the hot- test trend right now in home gar- dens- which means many garden- ers are trying something new (for them). A Kansas State University horti- culturist suspects lots of them don't know yet about a tool that can make a big difference in their food-grow- ing success. Depending on features, it can cost under $ ! 0 or more than $75. "Garden soil that's too cool can rot seeds. At most, transplants just sit there. So, experienced gardeners mometers, in contrast, must mea- sure temperatures that are below freezing, as well as above 100 F. "You're not going to make a mistake in a garden store. At a hard- ware store with more than one type of thermometer, though, you'll need to read packaging and examine di- als' temperature range," Upham said. Among the early spring veg- etables, various types of peas will germinate and grow well at a soil temperature of 40 F, which in Kan- sas can arrive in March. Lettuce, parsnips and spinach can sprout in 35-degree soils, but prefer at least 45 F for best germination and growth. Radishes also do weqi at 45 F. Tomatoes, sweet corn, beans and many other warm-season crops pre- fer at least 55 F for planting -- seeds or transplants. Peppers, cu- cumbers, melons and sweet pota- toes need even warmer soil, about 60 F. "Each day's changing air tem- peratures do affect the soil, causing the lowest readings just after dawn and warmest in mid-afternoon. So, you need to take the soil's tempera- ture 2.5 inches deep at 10 to 11 a.m.," Upham said. "You plant af- ter you get a consistent reading in the correct range for four to five days in a row -- also making sure, of course, that a cold snap isn't in your local weather forecast." That Alabama Cooperative Ex- tension System has a related tool available at no cost on the Web. The soil temperature-vegetable planting guide is at docs/A/ANR- 106 i/ANR- 106 l.pdf.
