Preparing Your Garden

Using a soil test kit to test the PH level of soil

One of the first steps in preparing a new vegetable garden is to check the soil PH- a simple kit can be purchased online or at a local retail store. Learning the PH level- if you garden soil is more alkaline or acidic will aid in you sorting out what additives may be necessary for a thriving garden.

One thought on “Preparing Your Garden

  1. Hi there, Great tips by the way and thank you.
    I did have a question though. I’m hoping you can answer it for me since you seem to be pretty knowledgeable about gardening. In a garden, how can you kill unwanted plants (e.g. weeds) without hurting other plants? I have a number of weeds growing in my garden beds right now… If you had some insight I would greatly appreciate it.
