Soil testing is very important for your garden. There are plenty of ways to test your soil. But today, I’m going to tell you how you can test you (PH) with just vinegar and baking soda.

All you need is 1cup of soil from different areas of your garden, 2spoon fulls of baking soda into separated containers, then add 1/2 cup of vinegar to the soil. If it fizzes, you have alkaline soil, with a PH of 7-8.

If it doesn’t fizz after doing the vinegar test, then add distilled water to the other container until 2 teaspoons of soil are muddy. Add 1/2 cup baking soda. If it fizzes you have acidic soil, most likely with a pH between 5 and 6.

If it doesn’t react at all, it is neutral with a pH of 7 and that is really good!
