Spring is in the air and it’s time to get our hands dirty! It might feel strange to start thinking about gardening with the amount of moisture we have received this month, and the chilly mornings. However, soil temperatures in Iowa are 32 degrees or higher. Both soil and air temperatures can affect plant life and germination of seeds. If too cold or too warm they can cause problems with seed germination and plant growth. It is important to check on temperatures throughout the season to ensure that you have a successful harvest!
