Adding Lime and planting - is it save to plant afterwards?
I'm in Florida and I just had my soil tested after a batch of onions never really bulbed well. The result was a 4.0 ph level and minor to trace nitrogen. While the nitrogen could have been the issue with the small onions, with the pH level so low, I decided to add lime after I pulled up all the onions. I have just a small backyard garden with 6 raised beds and separate in-ground areas for tomatoes and this onion patch. The patch that I just limed is about 50 sq feet.
Here's my question - there's not a lot that can be planted at this time in Florida as we approach summer, but I have been growing sweet potato slips and would like to put them in the patch. Although I realize it takes a few months for the lime to do its thing and change the pH, would it hurt to go ahead and plant the sweet potato slips in that patch now? If not, what is the minimum time I need to wait?
