FEATURE: Get Your Garden Ready for Spring with These 5 Easy Steps
As growing season approaches, spend some time preparing your garden for tomatoes, vegetables, and other crops. The dirt is to be their home. You can help make it as welcoming as possible.
Till the bed Begin preparing your soil by cultivating the bed 8-10 inches deep with a garden spade or tiller/cultivator.
Cover the soil so it warms Tomatoes like warm soil. Even if air temperatures start to heat up in the spring, it takes the dirt awhile to catch up. You can help prevent transplant shock by covering your tomato plot with sheets of black plastic, which absorbs heat from the sun and accelerates the warming process.
Note the pH Tomatoes grow best in slightly acidic soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0 – optimum is between 6.5 and 7.0. If your soil’s pH isn’t within that range, make proper adjustments.
Amend nutrients Check soil test results for an even balance between nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, all necessary for strong tomato production. Evaluating nutrients will go a long way in preparing your soil because you will know what you need to add.
