A Twist of Lime
Well, this is about lime. But it's got nothing to do with the Food Network or cherry limeades.
It's all about agricultural lime. Several weeks ago, Randy gathered soil samples from different fields and took them to the co-op so they could be sent to a lab for testing.
Some tests for the pH of the soil came back low. An ideal soil pH is around 7. We had some tests that came in at 4.8.
The pH is a logarithmic scale: The lower the pH, the more acid in the soil. The higher the pH, the more alkaline the soil.
