I'd like to measure the PH of my soil.
I have PH paper.
Stick it in a liquid, compare color to chart and I have the PH.
But dirt is not a liquid.
Put dirt in water and some stuff will dissolve and other stuff won't.
And the PH is dependent on how much water you add.
So, how the heck do I prepare the sample to get a PH reading for dirt?
