I got a soil analysis kit for Christmas and ran the tests on samples
from a number of different places and conclude that nothing can grow
The only place nitrogen was indicated was in a sample from one of those
compressed peat pots.
I also took samples from my corn patch, the farmer's field corn field
across the road, our compost pile and the chicken coop.
The compost (10 years of chicken manure, fireplace ashes, sawdust,
leaves, etc) showed the faintest tint of pink, the peat was very pink
but the rest where absolutley clear indicating no N1.
The pH is around 8 on all but the farmer's field and I can believe this
because it agrees with my pH meter and I will take steps to correct
this in Spring.
Anyone have any experience or thoughts on these test kits?
