Soil Testing - Plants grow best when soil pH is in the optimum range and spring is a great time to test for pH before the growing season begins. Bring 1/2 to 1 cup of soil from 8-12 spots 6-8 inches deep taken randomly around the garden and mixed together. Take separate samples for different growing areas. Testing is for pH only, and doesn't include testing for nutrients. Limit of 3 samples per person.
