Soil pH measures how acidic or alkaline the soil makeup is. The pH scale can run from 1 through 14 while 7 is neutral. 1-6.9 indicates the level acid in the soil. 7.5-14 indicates the level of alkaline in the soil. Most soil has a pH level between 4.0 (acidic) to 8.0 (alkaline) while most vegetables do best with pH levels between 6.0 and 7.0, but there are exceptions.

Test your soil with an Electric Soil Tester.  All you will need is an electric tester, water and the cleaning pad that comes with the tester.  Wet the soil with water.  Push the tester probes into the soil.  Switch the test to the pH value setting and switch on — that’s it!

To reap the highest yields in the least amount of space, you should customize each of your beds to the vegetable’s ideal pH level. Read the full article here: HowToProvide.com
