I’m writing about the results of my soil sample, while watching outside to see if it’s going to hail again or not.  Luckily, I do have my hail netting in place now, but I really don’t want to test it.  We’re experiencing sustained 30 mph wind with gusts up to who knows how strong.

I learned a couple of things about my soil over the past week.  First, I saw the PH of my soil was not ideal so I tested the PH of the water that soaks my pumpkins.  The PH of my water was 8.0 (BUMMER).  I have not found any good articles on how to counter PH in water or soil.  Does anyone out there have some advice that they could post and others learn from?
