A great article from Thesurvivalplaceblog which will show you how to make a DIY your own soil pH testing kit to test the soil in your garden!
If you’re new to gardening, testing your soil might seem difficult. You could purchase a soil pH testing kit from a nursery or garden center, but they often come with a big price tag. And they aren’t always reliable.
Another option is to have your local Cooperative Extension Office test your soil for pH levels and nutrients. The analysis is very helpful because it’s very detailed and includes suggestions specific to your region. However, the soil analysis could take a few weeks.
If you don’t have time—or money—consider making your own soil pH testing kit from scratch. The Guru Magazine recommends using a simple method for checking your soil.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Two Glass Jars
- Measuring Cup
- Baking Soda
Step 1. Get a soil sample.
Scoop out ¼ cup of soil from your garden and put it into a glass jar.
