Answer: Gabey Troy, NY A.We all get overly anxious to get back to the dirt in spring. You do need to wait until after all threat of frost is past wait until the ground is dry enough. The soil should be light and fluffy. A test is to pick up a handfulof soil and squeeze it into a ball. If it forms a firm ball that doesn't easily break apart with the poke of your finger, then the ground is still too wet.
