Optimal Location to use Soil Sensor?

Hi everyone!

I was wondering where might be the best place to measure soil moisture to determine whether or not my plants need water. This might seem like a simple question, but in reality, if we test too close too a plant, we risk killing the plant by stabbing it with the sensor. However, due to the precise watering of the Farmbot, soil that is farther away is always dry. What would people recommend?

Thanks!
