One way to determine if your soil is ready for planting is to do a simple squeeze test. Scoop up a handful of soil and squeeze it in your palm. If the imprints of your fingers remain in the soil, the soil is too wet to work. If the soil falls away in loose crumbles when you open your hand, it is a good time to plant.
