Now that you can finally see the soil from under the white stuff, the best investment toward a great garden this year is to have your soil tested. It may look like dirt, but it’s the living soil that will provide your flowers, fruits and vegetables with the nutrients they needed to produce an abundant harvest.
For just $8.00, the University of Connecticut Soil Lab offers fertility and pH testing and recommendations.
You can pick up a test kit at many local garden centers, any UCONN extension office or use this printed guide – http://www.soiltest.uconn.edu/factsheets/HomeGrounds.pdf
They offer additional testing options as well.

You’ll be surprised how much you didn’t know about what’s under your feet.
