Most plants hate to have their roots wet. And once plants are in the ground, their roots can grow deeper and reach into the ground water stored in the soil.
If you crops are wilting or stunted and it’s been awhile since you’ve had rain, chances are you need to help mother nature along and give some water.
You should know your soil type and what it lacks- so sending off a soil sample to your local extension agent can be a great start.
Before you ever start a garden you need to have some basic knowledge of your growing zone, your last frost date, and the preferences of garden crops.
If you’ve never grow radishes before, you might not be able to identify them as they sprout and accidentally pull them up as a weed. Labeling helps you keep track of all the plants you have planted.
