Soil temperatures stalled for most of Midwest

Winter weather continues in most of the Midwest which means a slow warm up in soil temperatures.

The prolonged spring is impacting soil temperatures. After looking at last week's soil temperatures compared to this week's soil temperatures, it is clear that the latest April blizzard and winter weather has stalled soil temperatures from rising impacting #plant18. One state that has increased is Illinois though with some soil temperatures in the 60 degree range but most of the northern Midwest is not moving. Check out the rest of this week's soil temperature gallery.
