How do you determine if your soil is warm enough to plant in? You can use a thermometer or just guess I suppose, but wouldn’t it be hilarious to see your neighbour using the Bare-bum Test? What’s that you say? It’s pretty much how it sounds. According to lore the soil is warm enough to plant in if you can sit on it with your bare buttocks. Yes, it may be an old wives tale, but apparently this method was included in some old gardening journals. Funny or accurate, I think I may figure out a more discreet way to test my soil.
