Healthy soil

gardening by Yukié Matsushita

The best time to plant tomatoes, peas, green beans, zucchinis, etc. is in late spring/early summer when the lowest temperature of the day is at least 10°C (50ºF). (Someone said 10 - 14 days after the last frost day.) 

I am getting ready to plant some lettuces in my garden soon. 

I am mixing organic fertilizers and compost so the soil will have more nutrients for vegetables. 

The foundation of good gardening is to have healthy soil.

Good soil = Good plants

I took a note from various gardening sources. 
So this is what healthy soil is made of; 45% Mineral matter, 25% air, 25% water, and 5% organic.
