Subject: soil test kit
Forum: Beginner Gardening
I have a vegetable garden that has been in for a number of years. I generally add leaves and grass clippings to it in the fall and empty my compost bin on to it ever three years or so. I also empty the ashes from my wood stove and often add a small bag of bone meal and blood meal once a year. I generally plant tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, green beans, and lettuce. The garden didn't do so well last year so I think I should test the soil to make sure I have the right balance of nutrients instead of arbitrarily dumping in a few bags of this and that. I am wondering if someone can recommend a decent soil test kit to use. I live in New England if that matters.
Thanks for the advice,
