Hello, this is Rick Heflebower, Utah State University Cooperative Extension Service or culture agent located in Washington County, Utah.

Today I'd like to talk a little bit about gardening seeds, these happy vegetable seeds that we will soon be planting into our vegetable gardens.

Soil Testing And Spring Planting Preparations

One of the things that would be important for people to do this time of year, particularly in southwest Utah, where I'm located, is to do some soil testing.

The reason I think a soil test is important this time of year, this would be particularly for people who have a brand new garden, or maybe they've moved to a new home or a location where they haven’t had a garden before, the soil test can tell them, given them basically kind of a bench line, of what their soil is like, maybe what it's lacking.
