Monitoring soil temperatures every Spring is our May ritual for determining when the soil is ready to plant our primary crop of Organic Seed Potatoes. Tempt fate, pay no attention or jump the gun too early and you could set the stage for trouble down the road. This Soil Thermometer can help you avoid unnecessary problems like spotty emergence, Powdery Scab, Rhizoctonia, Hollow Heart and more.

Every May morning we take readings at 6” depth at 7am (before the sun gains influence) and patiently wait for the soil to crest 50oF before we start planting. Because we believe in second-opinions, we always utilize three Soil Thermometers to speak the truth to us. Our Soil Thermometer is an indispensible tool, a secret-of-the-trade which pays us big dividends. Stainless steel, 6.5” Probe, Dial-Face 2” diameter.
