    i thought this was an interesting tip


    Test your garden soil for acidity by mixing one-cup soil with two cups water, then stirring in 1/4 cup of baking soda. If you have a volcano erupting in your container, your soil is very acid. If you just have a little fizz around the edges, you have a minimally acidic soil :sing:

    I was wondering if the PH of the water would affect the results.
